When 60 trucks were checked, 26 trucks were found to be in violation and a total of 41 violations were found.

Colleagues from the National Police Unit/Transport and Environmental Control and RDW also participated in the Dutch inspection in Venlo.

In addition to the above-mentioned checks, trucks were also subjected to a technical check. A total of 13 trucks were checked in Venlo; Violations were found in 7 cases.

European supervision

International cooperation brings greater unity in the supervision and enforcement of European legislation relating to the road transport of goods. The ILT has a pioneering role in this. Thanks to the joint checks, inspection services can share their knowledge of and experience with roadside checks and better coordinate procedures.
