Belarusian and Lithuanian customs authorities discuss increasing traffic capacity at border

06.07.2016
Truck queues at the Belarusian-Lithuanian border might soon disappear as the customs services of the two countries are preparing to introduce a new system. Basic control procedures will be carried out within the countries rather than at the borders. Cooperation prospects were discussed yesterday by the heads of the Belarusian and Lithuanian customs agencies.The common border is crossed by up to 5,000 cars daily. The green corridor system will allow speeding up cargo clearance at no additional costs. Businesses and organisations with an impeccable reputation will be able to send the documents for customs clearance without leaving the office. This will allow their couriers to cross the border in just 15 minutes. The experiment will be launched by the end of the year at the Losha - Sumskas checkpoint.Also, in the near future, the border guards and customs officers of Lithuania and Belarus will try to balance the transit flows and establish norms for transport clearance, rules for information exchange and warning citizens of possible queues.
