AMMAN — President of the Truck Owners Association Mohammad Dawoud on Monday said that the syndicate was in talks with stakeholders for the entry of Jordanian trucks into Iraq, especially that security conditions have recently improved in the neighbouring country.

Dawoud told the Jordan News Agency, Petra, that the recent re-opening of borders with Iraq allowed some 1,000 trucks to resume their activities, which contributes to restoring the momentum in the sector, although on a small scale in the current phase.

He noted that some 100 trucks arrived in an exchange zone near the borders and unload their cargo to Iraqi trucks that deliver shipments to Iraqi cities, adding that shipments mainly contain fruits, vegetables, groceries, wood and iron.
