Transit history

Transit History

Transit fees have always been collected by Vehicle Inspectorate Department (VID) as an agent of ZINARA from inception. They were always collected manually using manual receipt books and manual transit coupons.

Computerised Transit System

  • The application is called Cross Border Management Systems (CBM)
  • This is an application that was introduced on 16 April 2014 and it works as a point of sale system for the collection of Transit Fees across our 7 main border and 17 inland Vehicle Inspectorate Department (VID) Depots around the country.
  • At the border posts, the system is run by both ZINARA and VID staff. It is integrated with the Tolling System (ZIMTOLL) such that all transit vehicles are issued with a barcoded transit coupon which is then scanned and authenticated at the various tollgates manned by ZINARA.
The system now also handles prepaid transactions. One can obtain a prepaid card from the ZINARA selling points for use on tollgates and for purposes of managing transit fees prepayment by customers
