Small freight companies are suffering serious losses due to the coronavirus testing of truck drivers introduced by the Greek authorities at the Kulata-Promachonas border crossing between Bulgaria and Greece. Dissatisfaction escalates and may grow into spontaneous blocking of traffic on Bulgarian territory. 
The vice-president of the Union of Bulgarian Transport Workers Vesselin Dangov explained to BNR that between 7.00 am and 10.00 pm, when the tests are performed, no more than 20-30 trucks are able to cross the border. 
According to the carriers, this is yet another violation of the European agreement on green transport corridors by Greece.
