Land Borders Fully Congested

18 July 2011, 15:02 / SeaNews / Rating: 451

1210 trucks to enter Russia, 442 to leave, excluding 400 that were on the Finnish border yesterday

It seems that shippers who use road to get their goods into Russia may have to look at the sea transport to avoid the congested land border crossings.

Yesterday there were 400 trucks waiting to enter Russia on the Finnish border, a source in the North-West Customs Administration told SeaNews. Today the situation has improved with 70 trucks at Torfyanovka and 15 at Svetogorsk.

Now the worst queues are on the Latvian border with 358 trucks waiting to enter Russia at Burachki, 237 at Ubylinka and 123 at Ludonka. 248 trucks are lining up in Ivangorod on the Estonian border.

The main reason for congestion are the new rules of sanitary, etc., control. ‘They gave us all the functions without adding a single employee to the staff’, explains SeaNews’ customs source.

To certain sectors, officers from Central Russia were relocated. ‘But it takes time to relocate people to the border and teach them’. So there problem putting the ‘generally good intention’ into practice.
