We all know that border post delays are bad and that bribery and corruption are out of control.
When your trucks get stopped for bribery, you must refuse to pay. There are some companies that just don’t allow it. There are transport companies that are prepared to park their trucks for two days and wait if they have to.
After a while, the ‘runners’ let you go because they’re not getting any joy. Thereafter, if they see your trucks coming, you don’t get stopped anymore because they know your company doesn’t pay.
They are only stopping the companies that pay. Sure, there’s a bit of pain we’ve got to take up front, but we’ve got to get to a point where we’re not doing it anymore. It’s a tough pain, but the benefits are there at the end of the day.
