The UK seeks to lift the ban on trucking

A new strain of coronavirus detected in the UK has worried the authorities of many countries, which have cut off transport links with it.

This decision of the governments of several countries led to the suspension of cargo transportation, which for the British resulted in a shortage of goods in supermarkets, as the trucks were stuck in a queue that stretched for many kilometers. And such a situation in the country developed just three days before Christmas.

To solve the problem, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked French President Emmanuel Macron to allow cargo transportation to and from Britain.

Media outlets report that France and the UK may announce the resumption of trucking by Wednesday, provided truck drivers pass mandatory testing. Lorry drivers stuck in line are reported to have slept in their trucks and hope they can get home by Christmas.
