A one-stop border post with the accompanying warehousing and parking facilities.

Zambia shares borders with eight countries in the South-eastern subregion which strategically positions the country as a land-linked transit hub to its neighbouring countries. The improved infrastructure and connectivity to the port of Dar es Salaam will help unlock Northern Zambia’s immense agriculture potential, improving regional trade and increasing the attractiveness of international export and investment.
