The construction of the Sillamäe Truck Stop (border parking zone) is a result of cooperation between the European Commission, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications of Estonia, and the Port of Sillamäe. The TruckStop has allowed for the elimination of the queue of trucks on the highway, waiting to cross the border, improved road safety and living conditions for the drivers, and provides them with an opportunity to rest and relax. The realization of the project will also help to arrange the work of the maritime crossing post.
In addition to the offices of the customs officers, the building is also equipped with rooms for declarants, for the employees who deal with digital data, personnel service rooms, a cafe, rest area and all other necessary facilities. The system of electronic queue for border crossing GoSwift, developed by the GirF company, is used in the process of the functioning of the parking zone. The mentioned system works at all Estonian land border crossing posts (Narva, Koidula, Luhamaa) on the border with the Russian Federation and was designed to make the process of border-crossing more convenient and without unnecessary downtime.
Parking area in Sillamäe only serves trucks and is united with the Port of Sillamäe and a maritime crossing post, which permits drivers to choose the opportunity for border crossing — to cross the land border, or go to Russia by ferry. The advantages of the Sillamäe truck parking area include the possibility to clear customs, to complete customs declaration forms, to send digital information across the border and to sign in for the electronic queue, which will speed up border crossing significantly. The parking lot allows for 450 heavy-duty trucks to be accommodated at the same time.
