REGULATION OR COMPETITION IN ROAD TRANSPORT?

Some OECD countries have deregulated freight and/or passenger road transport in recent years with the aim of improving efficiency. The experience gained from deregulation shows that there is no justification for the continued economic regulation of road freight transport. Deregulation of passenger road transport has produced increased frequency of service, decreased fares and innovations in the types of vehicles and services offered. The countries were: Sweden, United States, United Kingdom, and Australia.
