A ministerial decree regarding the new COVID-19 measures was published last night. As the transport and logistics sector is considered essential, it is exempt from the measures.
A curfew will come into effect tonight. This means that between 00:00 and 05:00 it is forbidden to travel on public roads. Business travel can still take place, but it must be possible to justify it. Employers can draw up certificates or use the consignment note to justify essential travel. FEBETRA has drawn up certificates which be used to attest that drivers are making a trip that is a necessary part of their work (CP 226, CP 140.03 and CP 140.04). You can download them from the FEBETRA Corona Belgium Blog (https://febetra.be/belgique/).
Companies in some sectors are obliged to keep a register of their foreign workers, but the transport and logistics sector is exempt.
