MINSK, 10 October (BelTA) – Truckers from the European Union still have to leave and pick up trailers in Belarus, the press service of the Belarusian Transport and Communications Ministry told BelTA.
The ministry explained that the Council of Ministers' resolution No.247 “On the movement of transport vehicles” of 22 April 2022 remains in effect. Truckers still have to leave their trailers and attach new ones in specific locations.
European Union truckers can get permits for international transportation of freight by road in Belarus as from 10 October. But the permits are granted only so that trucks can reach the locations where trailers are supposed to be reattached to trucks. The procedure for using the permits for travel through Belarus' territory, which the Belarusian side has transferred to competent authorities of foreign countries, also remains in place.
