MAN Germany

SECURE GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES NOW.

“De minimis” & apprenticeship/in-service training.
Save up to € 33,000.

In 2023, companies active in freight transport can still save up to 33,000 euros and take advantage of state funding through the “De minimis” programme of the BAG (German Federal Office for the Transport of Goods). This helps reinforce safety for road freight involving heavy goods vehicles long term as well as sustainably reducing any environmental pollution to a minimum, by lowering emissions and reducing material consumption. MAN offers you numerous options for this in order to benefit from the various subsidy measures on the part of the Federal Government, to organise your vehicle fleet even more economically, and to be able to claim up to 80 % of the associated expenses. Applications can be submitted online to the German Federal Office for the Transport of Goods (BAG) until 30/09/2023.

Up to what amount is funding possible?

There is no restriction on the amount of the measure to be funded. The basis for calculating the subsidy is € 2,000 multiplied by the number of vehicles ≥ 7.5 t gross train weight that were registered by companies in accordance with § 1 of the Road Haulage Act (GüKG) on 01 December of the previous year or have been registered since then (maximum € 33,000 or 17 vehicles).
