International comparisons of taxes and charges on road haulage require a framework that can relate all the various taxes and charges levied on transport activities to marginal costs, if they are to provide satisfactory answers to the following types of question. -- Do hauliers in one country pay more than in the other, and what impact does this have on the profitability of haulage in each country? -- Is the impact of an increase in tax on diesel the same in each country or are differences in the taxation of labour more significant? -- Do these differences distort the international haulage market?
