The slot-booking process (SBP) that was introduced in 2017 is intended to distribute truck traffic at the terminals more evenly and make calculability easier for all those involved. Though the SBP is used appropriately by many haulage companies, some book considerably more slots than they ultimately need. The slots that are booked but not needed are often not released, which means these capacities expire unused and are not available to other companies. The SBP system is being further developed in order to create fair parameters for all those involved. Truck FIT will start from the 31. January 2022.
A “no-show quota” will be calculated for every participant in the SBP. This counts how many slots have been booked but not used. If a company repeatedly overbooks slots, temporary measures will take effect.
How is the no-show quota calculated?
