East Europe Foundation, within the framework of the USAID/UK Aid Project Transparency and Accountability in Public Administration and Services (TAPAS), announces a competition for a post of data analyst to support the Electronic Border Crossing Queue Project (eQueue).
In December 2022, the Ministry of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development of Ukraine, together with the State Service for Transport Safety, launched an electronic border crossing queue for trucks – eQueue (Android: https://bit.ly/3pBBDhD, iOS: https://apple.co/41EZHxg) – at the Yahodyn-Dorohusk international border crossing point.
In May 2023, the system for online booking of border crossing points by freight carriers was extended to include 15 more international border crossing points with the EU and Moldova.
Using this newly created service, drivers can book a place in the queue to cross the border and check the progress of the queue online. The system automatically sends a message to the driver indicating the estimated time of border crossing. This allows the queue to be well managed as drivers can now arrive at the checkpoint at the specified time instead of waiting on the roadside for several days. In addition to it, it helps to reduce the cost of cargo transportation.
The service increases the transparency of border crossing and reduces corruption risks, as it minimizes the human factor impact and eliminates various abuses that might occur due to congestion at checkpoints.
