The "Electronic Border Crossing Queue" pilot project, which was designed to reduce traffic jams at border checkpoints, will be operational in less than a month.

Ukraine’s Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Mustafa Nayem announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports, citing the Ukrinform news agency.

“We are currently preparing to launch the ‘Electronic Border Crossing Queue’ (e-Queue) pilot project at the first border checkpoint, Yahodyn – Dorohusk. This is important primarily for the comfort of drivers, as well as for the organization of the checkpoints, because they are our face, the first thing that carriers see when they arrive in Ukraine from other countries. These are often two different worlds and the comparison is unfortunately not in our favor. Therefore, we will correct it,” said Nayem.

According to him, the need for the e-Queue project arose because of the increased workloads of automobile checkpoints.

For example, sea and air routes were blocked after Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine and the volume of goods transported across the border in trucks has been increasing steadily since then.

The physical volume of export goods totaled 1.4 million tons in September this year, which is 400,000 tons more than the volume in March.
