Pakistan also has borders with India, Iran and China, in addition to a large coastline. Smuggling
takes place across all these borders, and through the sea. For instance, large quantities of diesel
and petrol are smuggled into Pakistan from Iran on daily basis. It is done either in tankers each
carrying about 15,000 litres, or in smaller high speed pickups loaded with plastic cans. The
smuggled fuel is sold in improvised road side fuel pumps across Balochistan and adjoining areas
of other provinces.

It may be noted that items that are smuggled across international borders keep changing over
time. As the complexion of a country’s economy changes, so does the nature of smuggled goods.
In other words, it is not the enforcement effort that has a significant bearing on what is smuggled
but rather the nature of economy and the price differential of goods between us and our
neighbours.
