Trucks Carrier Register

  • Trucking is the most important segment of the country's economy. The cost of each item on the shelf includes a large proportion of the cost of transport logistics. To effectively manage them, it is necessary to return either to licensing, or to strict finalization of this process (for example, through the creation of a registry). One way or another, cargo transportation by road should become a completely transparent and safe market for all participants in the transaction.

    The industry needs a systemic mechanism that can enforce the rules of the game for everyone. Perhaps the responsibility should be distributed between regulatory bodies and trade union organizations on an equal footing in order to take into account the views of all market participants, especially SMEs in the regions.

    It will also affect where the technical condition of the trucks will be serviced. Previously, trucks could be serviced in any garage, often unofficially, without paying taxes. But if there is a registration of carriers, then hmm will need to service their trucks in official services, such as It will be a bit more expensive than being serviced in informal garages. But some services will increase.

    Today is actively considering the initiative to create a register, which will include carriers that meet certain criteria. This is also financial solvency, which must be confirmed by the presence of property worth at least 50,000 dollars (when using one vehicle) and at least 20,000 dollars per each additional vehicle or by providing a guarantee for a similar amount. In addition, there should be no debts in taxes, fees and other obligatory payments to the budgets of all levels. The professional competence of carriers will be confirmed by the presence in the staff of at least one responsible specialist, whose qualifications are confirmed by a certificate of professional competence or the presence of an employment contract with such a specialist in combination.

    It is clear that the introduction of the registry and other transitional measures will help oust most of the carriers that operate under “gray” schemes from the market. But this process must be carefully implemented in order to avoid a shortage of carrying capacity, especially during periods of seasonal peaks. If such a situation arises, it may well be used by large carriers and logistics operators to raise tariffs. In the absence of an alternative, cargo owners will be forced to increase the cost of transport logistics, and ultimately this will affect the cost of goods in stores. The average buyer does not have to pay for the new regulation, this is important to understand.
