With the border sealed, the government is tasked with ensuring the continuous supply of essential goods through Phuentsholing and avoiding the risk of Covid-19 from transporters entering the country.

Essentials arrive in Indian trucks to the mini dry port in Phuentsholing. The Indian drivers who drive the containers and trailers, clearing agent staffs and customs officials are the primary people involved at the mini dry port. The drivers are seen as potential carriers.

As a prevention measure, officials are working on safety measures at the mini dry port to prevent Covid-19 enter from the port.
