MINSK, 23 August (BelTA) – The throughput capacity of Belarusian border checkpoints has surged three times over the last 15 years, BelTA learned from the website of the Belarusian State Customs Committee.
The total throughput capacity of Belarusian border checkpoints surpasses 30,500 vehicles per day. The goal set forth in the guidelines for the development of the customs service was to reach this number by 2019.
The number of vehicles crossing Belarusian border checkpoints 15 years ago was estimated at slightly over 11,000 vehicles a day. “An almost threefold increase in the throughput capacity has been achieved thanks to the well-developed infrastructure and high-technology equipment. The wait time at the border has been reduced considerably,” the post on the website reads.
The infrastructure of border checkpoints is constantly upgraded to keep augmenting the throughput capacity, providing comfortable stay for passengers and hauliers on the border, and enhancing Belarus' transit attractiveness.More about Society
