What is understood by own-account transport?
Own-account transport refers to freight transport that takes place between different locations of the same company, but is only an auxiliary activity for the company. What is important here is that this transport is carried out with the company's own vehicles and personnel. Although this traffic does not require a permit, it must still be reported to the authorities.
The transport for own account differs from forwarding in that forwarding is not an auxiliary activity, but a business transport.
