A suspension of trucking between Russia and Poland and subsequent shutdown of road freight transportation between Russia and Ukraine have made Russian freight carriers switchover par ally their routes to those via the Baltic States. It is to be noted that Poland and Ukraine which initiated border closure for carriers were affected the most by suspension of trucking. Probably, assessment of negative effects prompted Russia and Poland to exchange permits to trucking (170,000 licenses to each side till the end of the year) on 1 April 2016.
