Black Sea permits doubled

Member states of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organisation (BSEC) that are involved in the region’s truck transit permit system have agreed to significantly increase permit quotas for 2022, the International Road Union (IRU) reported.


At a meeting in Istanbul and virtually, member states underlined the importance of the permit system in gradually opening the transport market in the BSEC region and its positive contribution in boosting regional trade and goods transport networks.


In 2022, countries in the system will now each have 3,000 permits, up from 1,500 this year, with the exception of Armenia, which will have 800 permits. This doubles 2021 quotas, which in turn was a 50% increase on 2020. Each permit can be used by one truck for one round trip to transport goods across borders in the region. (ben)
