Bitam is the end station of the road 25 km away from the town of Ambam. Customs authorities and security corps (Gendarmerie and Police) have offices which are functioning 7 days a week from 07H00 to 18H00. Many check points are open on the way. Most of the trucks crossing the border contain mainly food produced in Cameroon to supply the markets of Gabon. Passenger transport by Cameroonian cars or bus is not allowed to enter in Gabon.

Only the Gabonese public transport is allowed to cross the border with passengers in respect to the Gabonese immigration law. Any logistical activities other than trucks delivering food to Gabon are not available. There are not fuel stations between Ambam to Bitam border entry point to the Republic of Gabon.
