Around 20 trucks were waiting on the Belarusian side of the border for their turn to enter Lithuania via the Medininkai checkpoint and 10 trucks were queuing up on the Lithuanian side, he said.
Another 30 and 10 trucks, respectively, were waiting at Lavoriškės.
“These hauls are the last ones before the New Year. Later Russia will have holidays ... hence all companies seek to organize the hauls to be completed by the New Year,” Vincevičius told BNS.
However, the queues might grow again right before the New Year since Lithuania’s haulers would be coming back from Russia, he said.
“There was a 10-kilometer queue of trucks waiting for their turn to enter Belarus on Monday. That flow will have to come back... We have been notified that the checkpoints are manned adequately hence we hope that the drivers will not have to wait long,” the Linava spokesman added.
