2022 May 26, 7:46, Birgunj, Parsa

Retailers in Birgunj, Parsa have shut down all goods and transportation services after the rise in prices of petroleum products. The goods carrier service has been shut as the price hike in petroleum products has directly affected the transporters, the Transport Entrepreneurs Association, Birgunj said.

All types of goods carrier transportation services have been suspended for the time being due to the failure of increasing the freight rates despite the sharp rise in prices of petroleum products, Vice-president of the association Pravin Kumar Karna said. At least 40 to 60 truckloads of retail goods used to be transported to different cities from Birgunj every day.

President of the association Bal Krishna Pokharel said that 46 retailers affiliated with the association have demanded adjustment in the transportation fare as per the increased cost of petroleum products. Entrepreneurs have demanded a timely increase in the freight service charge along with an increase in the price of petroleum products.
