In the process of the transfer of railway wagons between countries, the main role in processing the flow of cargo is assigned to a border transfer station. Additional border operations – such as customs, environmental, veterinary, phytosanitary, and epidemiological control – have led to a significant increase in the number of detained railway wagons. As a result of these increases, delays in the deliveries of both import and export cargoes have also increased. Reducing the duration of the delivery of goods by rail could be achieved through reductions in the times taken to process trains at border transfer stations – risk management systems  based on the principle of selective survey operations in international traffic processing provide such an opportunity
