Ukraine, EU ink agreement on road freight transport.

Ukraine and the European Union have signed an Agreement on Freight Transport by Road, which abolishes the need for permits for Ukrainian carriers to perform bilateral and transit traffic.

According to Ukrinform, this was reported by the press service of Ukraine’s Ministry of Infrastructure.

"Today in Lyon, France, Ukraine and the European Union have signed an agreement on freight transportation by road. It eliminates the need for Ukrainian carriers to obtain appropriate permits for bilateral and transit traffic to EU countries and avoids stopping the export of Ukrainian products through road checkpoints," the statement said.

At the same time, the number of permits for international transportation to individual EU countries was declining.
