New Rules Make Border Congestion Worse

14 July 2011, 17:18 / SeaNews / Rating: 15274

The additional functions the customs recently received (phytosanitary, veterinary and quarantine control) have aggravated the congestion in land border crossings. Truckers report long queues to enter Russia on the borders in the North-West.

The reason is the lack of inspectors and workplaces for them. While customs now has more work to do, the number of personnel is the same.

As a result, the daily capacity of the crossing points has dropped, and the waiting time has increased. At Burachki on the Russian-Latvian border, the number of trucks entering Russia daily is down from 450-500 to 300. Torfyanovka on the border with Finland, which used to be able to serve some 800 trucks, now is capable of serving only 400 trucks at the very best.

During the first week after the new rules came into force the waiting time increased up to 5 days at Burachki and to 3 days at Torfyanovka.

As the time required to serve one truck increased, now a 300-truck queue at Torfyanovka takes 24 hours instead of 10 hours before the new rules were introduced.

Last week, the queues peaked on Thursday with 800 trucks waiting at Burachki. As of July 14, there are 450 trucks at this checkpoint.

On the Finnish border there are 130 traucks at Torfyanovka, 45 at Brusnichnoe and 35 at Svetogorsk. On the Estonian and Latvian borders, 200 trucks are waiting in Ivangorod, 180 at Ubylinka, 155 at Shumilkino, 110 at Kunichina Gora and 100 at Ludonka.
