Results in October improved compared with the previous months. In October, compared with August and September, 11 and 10 percent more TIR guarantees were issued.
Secretary General of Linava, Vidmantas Adomaitis, says that the improvement is related to the seasonal increase of cargo and reorientation by carriers to transport goods from the countries that do not fall under restrictions of the Russian Federation. According to Adomaitis, companies transported more goods from Turkey, Macedonia, Serbia and other countries that do not face the embargo.
