Mutukula One-Stop Border Point

418 vehicles a day pass through the Mutukula border point, with trucks taking over a day on average to process through customs from Tanzania to Uganda. This delay imposes serious costs on traders. They must wait longer for their import or export, pay for the truck to wait at the border, risk perishable goods losing their value and manage unpredictable transport times.

The Mutukula one stop border point improves physical border infrastructure, harmonises working procedures, faster customs processing and information sharing, which reduces waiting times at the border point. This contributes to the reduction of trade costs in East Africa.
