BRAZIL: Truck Drivers Association Presents Minimum Freight Proposition

06/14/2018 - 18:25:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - The Brazilian Association of Truck Drivers (ABCAM) presented a proposal for a minimum tariff for road freight transport to the National Land Transport Agency (ANTT). The table keeps the charge per kilometer traveled, but unlike the current tariff, proposes the differentiation of the tariff by type of vehicle.

According to the entity, the proposal intends to adapt the existing discrepancies between certain types of cargo, such as refrigerated and dangerous cargo, which are lower than the general cargo.

"The minimum price proposed considers a minimum necessary so that the driver can survive without the fragility of the service provided and his working condition," said the chairman of Abcam, Jose da Fonseca Lopes.

The proposition does not include the carrier's profit, which should be freely negotiated between the parties. The toll must already be paid by the contractor, according to the legislation. Taxes, insurance, daily expenses and meals are also not included.

According to Lopes, in the proposition presented, the general cargo was, on average, 20% below the current tariff, but there was no abrupt reduction by type of vehicle, as occurred in the resolution already repealed.

Fonseca also stressed that he does not intend to call for a new strike in case he does not have the approval of the minimum freight rate. "We do not want to bring more damage to the country."
