TALLINN - There are long queues at Estonian border crossing points for the second day in a row since the Russian Federation is not accepting cargo.
"Information about long queues is especially important for those freight carriers who transport perishable goods. Unfortunately, the Russian customs has not officially informed us about the causes of the border problems, so we cannot predict the time when they will be resolved," Ants Kutti, the Tax and Customs Board's head of customs on the external border, said. "As far as we know, the reason may be a technical fault in the border system of the Russian Federation."
As of Wednesday afternoon, there are 198 trucks waiting to cross the border at the Narva border crossing point and the border crossing has been delayed by 45 hours. There are 256 trucks in the queue at the Koidula border crossing point and the border crossing has been delayed by 51 hours, while there are 283 trucks in the queue at the Luhamaa border crossing point and and the border crossing has been delayed by 50 hours.
