Remuneration of the drivers posted in Denmark

IMPORTANT LAST UPDATE : The minimum remuneration rate in Denmark to increase on 1 of July 2024. 

Based on the Directive (EU) 2020/1057 all drivers posted to Denmark must be remunerated in accordance with the local wage rules applicable in Denmark (Posting rules). 

The Danish rules on the minimum remuneration are regulated in internal administrative legislation. All posted drivers must receive a minimum hourly remuneration depending on the type of operation.

Until now, the hourly minimum remuneration rate was the equivalent of 180,47 DKK for cabotage operations and the initial or final road leg of a combined transport I Denmark. For bus cabotage, the current minimum remuneration rate is the equivalent of 185,33 DKK. 

Currently, the hourly minimum remuneration rate is the equivalent of 190,15 DKK for cabotage operations and the initial or final road leg of a combined transport in Denmark, and 195,15 DKK respectively.

Perhaps it would be better for the transport operators to pay minimum 200,00 DKK which is slightly above the minimum requirement but should prevent any fines regarding no comply with the local law.

We also recommend pay slips send by IMI system to include a clear delineation between what the driver was paid for the work hours when he was posted in Denmark. This way, the Danish Road Traffic Authority can better identify the hourly remuneration that the driver received during his posting.

In addition, we would like to inform you that it has been confirmed for Move Expert by the Danish Road Traffic Authority that drivers posted during a cross-trade operation (non-bilateral operation) do not, at this time, fall under the scope of the requirement of remuneration.

The Danish Road Traffic Authority would like to accentuate that drivers posted during a cross-trade operation (non-bilateral operation) do not, at this time, fall under the scope of the requirement of remuneration.

Move Expert will provide with additional information about eventual change of the internal Danish legislation concerning the transport operators and drivers operating to/from/through Denmark.
