Help us say hauliers hit by Russia embargo

[ October 23, 2014   //   ]

Poland has asked the European Commission to consider granting aid to hauliers hit by the Russian embargo on food imports. According t the Polish Permanent Representation in Brussels, the country’s road hauliers lost €21.7 million in August alone. Hauliers specialising in food transport have invested in a dedicated fleet of refrigerated vehicles but have lost contracts following the Russian embargo. Hauliers from Lithunia and Latvia have also been badly affected.
