The article reviews the development of transport policy within common market countries and suggests reasons for lack of progress in certain policy areas. Two factors have made it possible for individual countries to follow nationalistic policies with respect to transport. Firstly, vagueness in the wording of the transport treaty has allowed different interpretations of its aims, and secondly, with no discrimination in transport rates on a nationality basis, failure to achieve a common policy was not seen as preventing the basic aims of the treaty from being achieved. It is suggested that future policies should concentrate on harmonization of such factors as formalities and price discrimination if progress is to be made.
