Business welcomes the decision to resume the operation of two checkpoints

08/ 05/ 2020
  This week, at the Government meeting, it was decided to resume the operation of checkpoints for the Rava-Ruska road connection and Skadovsk Sea Commercial Port for maritime traffic from May 8. Business welcomes this decision as it is known that some businesses in Europe have already restarted their activities in early May. Accordingly, the number of commercial orders for their partners operating in Ukraine has increased. That is why transportation across the western border of Ukraine has intensified. Currently, there are only two checkpoints open with the Republic of Poland on the Ukrainian side, namely Krakivets and Yahodyn. As the number of orders is increasing, the queue at the border is growing on the side of Ukraine. The EBA member companies note that the queue at checkpoints exceeds 300 trucks for several days in a row, and sometimes trucks lose up to two days of downtime at the border. As trucks are being delayed and flocked at checkpoints, number of businesses fail to fulfill their obligations. This situation is also endangering the health of drivers who conduct these transports, as they are forced to spend up to two days waiting in a queue. According to the Order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Poland №435 of March 13, 2020, the operation of Grebenne road connection, a checkpoint on the side of Poland, is not suspended for freight transportation. Therefore the decision to open the Rava-Ruska checkpoint from the Ukrainian side will help to unload Krakivets and Yahodyn. The European Business Association thanks the Government and the Ministry of Infrastructure for considering the opinion of business!
