An immense logistic and bureaucratic machine works each month to move to Strasbourg and to return to Brussels 4 days later. This operation engages the removal of 3.000 boxes, uses 8 trucks and all that costs 200 million euros / year to Europeans.

The problem of the European Parliament double-headquarters system.

The Parliament spends four days each month in Strasbourg in order to take its final plenary votes, but the daily activities and meetings take place in Brussels. On several occasions, the Parliament has expressed a wish to have the right to choose for itself the location of its seat, and eliminate the two-seat system, but in the successive treaties, EU member state governments have continued to reserve this right for themselves.
Moving various files and equipment between the two cities takes 8 large trucks and the costs for two locations are estimated at €200 million a year. Around 5,000 people attached to the Parliament, such as parliamentarians, advisors and journalists, also move between Brussels and Strasbourg. A lot of the parliamentarians are against using Strasbourg and various initiatives have been taken over the years to have Brussels as the sole location.
