Street Freight Association CEO Gavin Kelly says this hugely affects the vehicle and coordinations industry.
"Decent carriers are exposed to this. The Road Freight Association has approached government, over and over, to do what is fundamental. They should manage the people who see themselves exempt from the rules that everyone else follows - capture, confine and explore the agitators, the individuals who execute these demonstrations, and the people who volunteer to behave like police or specialists of the state."
Kelly says the police should mediate.
"Those businesses who keep on overstepping the law, are not enlisted with the different specialists as needed by different administrative prescripts or keep on utilizing people at rates underneath the essentials, should be managed.
The SAPS should mediate and make a move - not remain uninvolved and 'screen'. We are quick losing any regard as a protected, effective and helpful course for the development of merchandise out of, and into, Africa - and surprisingly South Africa."
