TIR Facilitates Seamless, Intermodal Transport
Thanks to TIR and its IT tools, the risk management procedures were completed ahead of the journey. As a result, the containers were not opened for inspection at any of the borders crossed, including at Chabahar port.
Shippers in the region and beyond can now benefit from reduced sea and land transport times, with Afghan goods set to arrive safely and securely at their destination up to 20% faster.
“This first intermodal TIR transport from India along the Chabahar corridor is an exciting development in the region and goes to demonstrate the wider potential of intermodal TIR for shippers and transport operators around the world,” said IRU Secretary General Umberto de Pretto.
