Multilateral exchange Leiden
The date: Sunday 14th 2013. Outside the Holiday Inn hotel in Leiden, the ECR flag is raised. The multilateral exchange in the Netherlands is about to start. During the course of the afternoon the 17 participants arrive from the airport and train station, chauffeured by their Dutch counterparts.

ECR in search of enforcement technology of the future
Any enforcer will tell you that one of the main challenges they face is that enforcement staff is outnumbered by the vast numbers of HGV’s and coaches involved in the European logistic chain. Not all of these trucks are non-compliant of course, but because of the ongoing internationalisation and growing numbers involved in this ever expanding industry it is easier for the black sheep to hide than in other modes of transport. A potential solution is data driven and risk based enforcement. To achieve this, reliable collection of enforcement data is needed. In the current climate of budget and personnel cuts, technological support is more vital than ever. WIM (weigh in motion) systems are currently being used in several member states, but the exchange of WIM data between MS’s is not in place yet and the systems could potentially be used for more enforcement fields than they currently are. Time to have a look at what is technically possible: now and in the near future.
