Vehicles with a load of more than 20 tons were banned from entering
The entry of vehicles with a load of more than 20 tons was banned: While earlier this week, the news of the reopening of the tax collectors border and return to normal conditions at this border was published, but a member of the board of directors of the Transport Companies Association banned the entry of vehicles weighing more than 20 tons informed.

Kamalundi added: “If the weight of the cargo is more than 20 tons, the customs officers will not allow the cargo to enter, which has caused the transportation conditions to be no different from the time when the border is closed.”
He continues: “By applying this condition, it will not be possible to cross the border for trailers with an average weight of 20 to 24 tons, and only ten wheels and the east will be able to enter Turkmenistan, which is also a small number.”
