On the 1st of April, representatives from Russia and Poland agreed to share permits for long distance trucking to the extent of 170,000 items for each party until the end of the year.
This is what the deputy head of the Russian Ministry of Transportation, Nikolay Asaul, said after the negotiations in Gdansk. He specified that the exchange of new quotas will take place just after a new decree from the Ministry of Transportation comes into effect. The decree is currently being registered in the RF Ministry of Justice.
The existing agreement expires on the 15th of April. According to the document, heavy goods vehicles of each of the parties need just 20,000 permits to cross the border.
At the end of the year, Poland demanded that Russia should sign a new agreement which would infringe upon the rights and options of Russian transport workers and which caused a transportation crisis on the Russian-Polish border.
