Business reports on a critical lack of road permits for international transportation

18/ 11/ 2020
  Every year, companies complain about the lack of road permits, particularly from the Republic of Poland, but in 2020, according to business representatives, it has reached a critical point. This year, Ukrainian carriers received 160,000 permits and have already completely exhausted this quota. The European Business Association has repeatedly emphasized this problem and sought assistance in solving it both in the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and at the international level. We are grateful to the Government for its repeated appeals to the Polish side on this issue, but, unfortunately, market players are forced to state that no positive changes have taken place so far. An insufficient number of permit quotas already leads to negative consequences, including suspension of production, delay, or reduction of supplies of finished products to the EU. Violation of goods delivery terms, which are due to partner companies outside Ukraine, hinders Ukrainian companies from the proper fulfillment of contractual obligations and negatively affects the image of Ukraine. Daria Sichkar. EBA Logistics Committee Manager. This year, Ukraine has taken important steps to regulate the procedure for issuing permits, namely, the introduction of the possibility to book permits online, which helps to ensure the transparency of the process of their obtainment. However, internal efforts alone are not enough - we need to establish a dialogue with international partners. Given the current exhaustion of permits to the Republic of Poland, the European Business Association appealed to the Government to support the business community in this regard. The first is to insist on increasing the number of permits for transporting goods on the territory of the Republic of Poland to at least 200 thousand in 2021 at the next meeting of the Ukrainian-Polish Joint Commission on International Road Transport. The second is to ensure that 60% of the allocated number of Polish permits for 2021 should be reserved for transit because the main trade flows to the EU lays across Poland. The third is to facilitate a dialogue with the EU on the complete abolition of the need to obtain permits for Euro-5 and Euro-6 vehicles for road cargo transportation from Ukraine to the EU for a comprehensive settlement of the situation with the lack of permits. The business hopes that the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Government will pay due attention to this issue and be able to reach a consensual solution to the problem of the insufficient number of permits for international transportation!   Be the first to learn about the latest EBA news with our Telegram-channel – EBAUkraine.
