Other Relevant Information

  • Truck parking capacity: 200 trucks
  • Warehousing space: 30 x 40ft Container                                                               
  • There are no forklifts available.
  • 90% of goods traffic is from India to Nepal.
  • Easy access to both sides of the border (no bridges or other potential hazards).
  • There is a single lane shingle road for the first 20 km on the India side before the 4 lane highway starts. This can lead to congestion. However, as this section of road is across a flat plain, it does not present major logistics issues in case of accidents or breakdowns as traffic may be diverted around a scene without too much trouble. India has plans to rectify this situation by extending the highway (unconfirmed).
