The first stage of a transport policy analysis for Serbia’s international road haulage sector is presented in the paper. The objective of the research was to define issues, priorities and possible policy instruments, or their combinations, having the most favourable effect, considering the opinion of the main stakeholders - haulage operators. The determination of key issues in the industry, their ranking and prioritizing by the main group of stakeholders are the base for definition of the objectives, policies and instruments that can guide government action in the sector. Relying on the available data sources and haulier survey results, the basic segments of the industry and their characteristics have been described. Key issue identification, selection and ranking methodology are presented, as well as the results of the study. The critical issues for the industry are also identified and described. Finally, the paper explains issues’ causes and effects, as well the government actions suggested to eliminate or mitigate their negative impact.
