Lebanese exporters ask Iraq, Egypt to cut transit fees

Lebanese exporters have asked Egypt and Iraq to reduce their transit transport fees in a bid to cut export costs after major land export routes were brought to a halt by the ongoing violence in neighbouring Syria, The Daily Star has reported. Recently roll-on-roll-off trucks have started to ship Lebanese export trucks from Tripoli to destinations in Egypt and Jordan after the situation on the roads connecting Lebanon through Syria became too dangerous. Exporters, however, have complained that high shipping costs, in addition to transit fees are narrowing their margins.
