BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazilian regulators on Tuesday allowed fuel distribution firms to share equipment for up to 15 days in order to resume fuel supplies faster after a week-long nationwide truckers’ strike.

The board of antitrust watchdog Cade unanimously voted to approve a petition put forward by Petrobras Distribuidora SA, Ipiranga Produtos de Petróleo SA and Raízen Combustíveis SA. Other fuel distribution firms may also share equipment during that period, provided they notify Cade.
