Retailers warned about new year’s eve prices rise because of “Plato”


Moscow. December 10. The transport company continues to see significant problems in the collection system for the passage of heavy vehicles “Plato”, and food producers and retailers predict that the implementation of the system will lead to increase in food prices in the new year’s holidays, informs on Thursday the newspaper “Kommersant”.

The publication notes that in early December, farmers and retailers are addressed to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev with a request to start the work “Plato” in the test mode without charging a fare. This proposal was expressed by business Ombudsman Boris Titov.

They noted that users of the system, despite assurances from the operator “Plato”, continue to face old problems: multiple debits, multiple overstatement of mileage of vehicles, the malfunction of the Internet portal.

This is due to the lack of equipment that allows you to automatically charge a fee, deliver goods, and small transport companies who can’t afford an advance payment of this size, refuse to fulfill orders, resulting in excessive load to the major players of the transport market.

This, according to the newspaper, leads to growth of tariffs for carriage by 20-30%, and in some regions and at 100%. Development Director “Rusprodsoyuz” Dmitry Vostrikov believes that to the greatest extent, the introduction of affect socially important goods with lower cost. So, that gallon of milk could go up first on 1,2 roubles, in March – 2.5 rubles.

The authors of the appeal, including the national meat Association, Rusprodsoyuz, the Fish Union “Soyuzmoloko”, the Grain Union, the Association of retail companies and others also proposed to switch from prepaid to postpaid and look for alternative methods of levy.

An alternative to “Plato” signatories to the letter believe the increase in fuel excise. So, they believe that it will be more equitable and less costly because the consumption of gasoline depends on the volume of cargo transported, and the carriers do not have to pay for the travel of empty trucks.
