"Tens of thousands of trucks cross the borders of Iran and Afghanistan; the transportation authorities of the two countries examined the way to facilitate the crossings of the trucks," said Davoud Keshavarzian, managing director of Iran's Road Maintenance and Transportation Organization. He said that a part of the toll was cut to reduce transit costs.
