Our functions and aims
The BWVL is a german based association specialized on private transport (own account) and logistics. It’s main task is representing its member’s interest in economics and politics.
Since the association’s foundation in 1955, the BWVL featured the development of goods traffic, actively and critically. It advocates for lasting liberalization and harmonization of transport, basic conditions of trouble free logistical processing and a good infrastructure as a basis for efficient and economic commerce and trade.
The BWVL’s principles are free choice of means of transport, affordable mobility and the mining of bureaucratic barriers. The association is strictly against competitive distortion caused by state intervention in the market, as well as unilateral burden of road haulage.
Our association lobbies for it’s members interests at national and international level on decision makers (e.g. government, European Parliament, European Commission).
The BWVL places a serious focus on the opinion of other national and international institutions of economies of transport, besides this we also work closely together with the press and the media.
Beyond that the BWVL offers its members a broad range of services to help them in their daily business, especially in the sector of truck fleet and logistics.
