Gov't Signs Cooperation Deals With Haulage Companies
The Economic Development Ministry signed a cooperation agreement with hauler associations MKFE and NiT on Friday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The government pledged in the agreement to raise the refund threshold for excise tax on vehicle fuel for haulers to HUF 10/liter, to introduce a minimum service fee, and to set a maximum threshold for the number of sub-contractors, the ministry said.
Haulers agreed to top up their tanks at petrol stations in Hungary, reduce the age of their fleets, and undertake technology upgrades.
Economic Development Minister Márton Nagy noted that close to 2,500 haulers and logistics companies employ over 280,000 people in Hungary
