The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority has been urged to address delays being experienced at the Beitbridge Border Post which stakeholders say are costing them and the nation huge sums of money.

Transporters and clearing agents said the delays at the border post are unbearable.

At an indaba held recently, the transporters and clearing agents cited issues such as delays in clearing trucks and shortage of staff at ZIMRA as the biggest threat to the ease of doing business at one of Africa’s busiest ports of entry.

Other delegates at the indaba also requested that the perennial challenges at the border be addressed as a matter of urgency.

ZIMRA has, however, pledged to address challenges which the revenue authority said are coupled with shortage of staff.

90 percent of bulk goods passing through Zimbabwe are transported by road.

On that reality, there have been urgent calls for the improvement of road infrastructure and efficiency at ports of entry.
