As Vedomosti writes , referring to a copy of the document, it was signed by the heads of the Association of International Road Carriers, the National Union of Experts in the Field of Transport and Logistics (SEL), the Russian Motor Transport Union, the National Meat Association, the Union of Juice, Water and Beverage Producers, the National Union of Producers milk (Soyuzmoloko), the Association of Internet Trade Companies, the Association of Producers and Suppliers of Foodstuffs Rusprodsoyuz, the Russian Grain Union and NP Rusbrand.
If the tariff is frozen, it will be possible to reduce the excess load and the negative impact on business. In addition, this will serve to implement plans for the modernization of the Russian road complex.

In March, we recall, Rusprodsoyuz, which unites over 400 food producers and suppliers and protects their rights, asked the government to abolish the fee for the use of road infrastructure, including the Platon system.
"Platon" (short for "toll fee") is a system for charging trucks with a maximum weight of more than 12 tons. It was launched in November 2015. From that moment on, carriers are charged with compensation for damage caused to federal roads.
