Haiti - Insecurity : Many Dominican carriers refuse to enter Haiti
Due to the multiplication of hijackings and looting of trucks, the prevailing insecurity in Haiti and the daily kidnappings for ransom of many dominicans carriers have decided not to enter Haiti anymore to deliver goods and food products in their truck or containers.

This measure has been adopted by Dominican drivers dedicated to travel and transport from the National District and the provinces of Santiago, Valverde, Puerto Plata, La Vega among others...

From now on, these carriers unload their goods in the border area and the Haitian carriers are responsible for picking them up and delivering them to their recipients in Haiti.

René Bazin, a Haitian transporter said that several of his colleagues were victims of the looting of their trucks while traveling in Haiti. He explains that the gangs in addition to kidnapping for ransom, are dedicated to looting trucks, tankers and other vehicles that transport food, building materials, household and electrical appliances, among others… adding "It pains me to say it, but my country is currently unlivable, many of my colleagues want to stop transporting, because there is no security for anyone."

For his part, Juan Marte the President of the National Central of Transport Workers considered wise the decision of Dominican carriers to refrain from entering Haiti with vehicles containing food and other goods. For Marte "it's the right thing to do because it's not fair that drivers risk their lives for a few more pesos."
