Representatives of logistics companies say the reason for the expected failures is the rules for the movement of trucks in Moscow that will come into force on May 5. The new rules have provoked difficulties in planning supplies for large food manufacturers.
According to Kommersant, the problems with the availability of transport do not allow us to guarantee deliveries on time. Representatives of retail chains said that counterparties had already warned them about possible delays in the supply of goods, since because of the new rules, carriers refuse to take orders and raise tariffs by 20%.
Carriers complain that they cannot issue the necessary passes under the new rules. The situation is especially difficult with the approval of applications for overnight transportation. Meanwhile, driving without a pass, which is recorded by cameras in automatic mode, is fraught with huge fines: for each violation, the amount of the penalty is 5,000 rubles. In such circumstances, carriers declare that they do not want to expose themselves to unnecessary risks.
Transport workers complain that the technical ability to issue the necessary permits in the data center system appeared for carriers only on April 26, while the registration process itself takes several weeks, so on the May holidays Muscovites risk being left without food.
