Following the massive hike in petroleum, the Goods Transporters Association Sindh have increased their fares by 30 per cent.

Karachi Goods Transport Association President, Rana Aslam said that the fares have been jacked up due to a massive increase in the price of diesel. The rates of tyres, spare parts and oil have also been jacked up.

The 30 per cent hike in the fares was inevitable, he said. The goods transporters have been directed to display fare lists at their respective stations with 30 per cent rise.It is being feared that with the move of transporters, the prices of edible items including, vegetables, milk and other raw material will also increase.
