It is a noteworthy inland port in northern Bangladesh set up to furnish an exchange interface with India, Nepal and Bhutan. The three countries are isolated by 52 km of Indian region, known as the Siliguri Corridor. On the Indian side of the outskirt is Phulbari. Outskirt intersection of vehicles amongst Phulbari and Banglabandha was initiated in January 2011.
In spite of the topographical nearness of the fringes of India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan, the issues of outskirt control and regional sway have clearly kept the foundation of direct exchange courses. Banglabandha was working as a "Land Customs Station" LCS before the Government of Bangladesh chose to build up an inland port.
