Honduras – Carriers proceeded to suspend this Monday the provision of cargo transport service nationwide. The unemployment of this sector is due to the high cost of operation, of fuels and the basket of inputs.

The president of the Honduran Chamber of Land Transport (CHTT), Charles Fonseca, He said that “it is not something that we want to do against the population, but we are with a cost too unsustainable, we can no longer”.

On the other hand, He stated that there is unfair competition generated by shipping companies, logistics and international transport of neighboring countries that to some extent have cheaper fuel and a more comfortable tax system that allows them to give better prices.

“All this comes directly to the detriment of the sector, we have problems of high costs and we are no longer going to be able to operate”, says Carlos Fonseca. Continue operating this way.".

They also point out that it will depend on the will of the private company to be able to adjust the freight rates so as not to continue seeing that unfair competition..

They will be waiting to obtain significant agreements with the government and private sector.

He stated that the suspension of the strike will depend on the will of the government to reduce the impact in relation to how to lower supplies and prices..
