Haiti-Dominican border: Trucks haul freight, air freight corridor is a possibility
Santo Domingo.- The head of Dominican Republic´s biggest truckers union (Fenatrado) on Monday said the possibility that Dominican Republic and Haiti establish an air freight corridor to export foods doesn’t concern them.
Blas Peralta said both countries have the right to enact the transport systems they deem fit. “That’s fine. If they think that’s the solution, then Amen.”
He said the truckers will haul freight overland regardless, because “the planes aren’t going to make home deliveries,” so they’ll still transport goods to and from airports.
Nonetheless the head of Fenatrado doubts that a Dominican-Haiti air cargo corridor project would materialize.
“God willing they’ll get jumbo aircraft which haul cargo. That´s nonsense from Dominican Republic and Haiti both, there are no planes for that,” said Peralta, speaking to listin.com.do by phone
Civil Aviation Board (JAC) chairman Roger Jover last week said his agency is finishing the Dominican-Haiti air cargo corridor project to transport around one million pounds of perishable foods daily.
