Three customs check points in Belarus - Kamennyi Log (frontier of Belarus and Lithuania), Kozlovichi, and the Warsaw Bridge (frontier of Belarus and Poland) - are to become automated using the Microsoft Windows platform.
The automobile check points are some of the largest in Europe and control much of the main freight traffic between the Commonwealth of Independent States and the European Union.
Automating the entry points using Windows is expected to increase bandwidth, speed up checks and help improve control. Currently, five different departments manage the three check points.
The project is to include more than 150 computerised workstations equipped with either Windows 2000 or Windows ME. Four servers are also to be switched over to Windows 2000 Server. The project is part of the Technical Assistance to the Commonwealth of Independent States program.
