Fuel Truckers, Ministry Reach Agreement

Officials at the Ministry of Transport & Logistics say they have reached an agreement with the Ethiopian Bulk Fuel Transport Owners Association over the adjustment of tariffs paid for the transport of fuel from ports in Djibouti. Earlier this month, leaders of the lobby group had threatened to go on strike if the government did not review tariffs, which they say are too low to cover growing operational and maintenance costs. The truck owners are paid 75,000 Br to transport fuel from Djibouti to Addis Abeba. A study conducted by the lobby group recommended the tariff be increased to over 100,000 Br. A letter to the Ministry, signed by Tsega Asamere, head of the Association, reads the trucks will continue providing their services following “an understanding” with officials. Neither the letter nor the Ministry's officials have disclosed whether the tariff has been adjusted.
