Fri, 10/08/2021 – 16:26 TIR slashes 80% off transit time with new Pakistan-Iran-Turkey corridor

IRU Secretary General Umberto de Pretto has greeted the successful arrival of two trucks in Istanbul today, launching TIR along the important new Islamabad-Tehran-Istanbul (ITI) trade corridor. 

The trucks, operated by Pakistan company NLC and carrying textiles and tyres for export, have demonstrated transit time savings of 80% on the normal maritime route. 

IRU Secretary General Umberto de Pretto said, “This new ITI corridor is a clear demonstration of how TIR saves time and money, bringing greater trade and economic benefits to this region. The ECO region has always been a pioneer in using the TIR system.” 

ECO Secretary General Khosrav Noziri said, “The successful activation of the ITI corridor is thanks to close coopepration between ECO and IRU, as well as all public and private stakeholders in the Iran, Pakistan and Turkey. It will definitely help boost regional integration and connectivity.”

With the traditional sea route taking 25 to 40 days, the transport has successfully demonstrated huge time-savings. TIR transports can now reach Istanbul from Pakistan in as little as six days, with highly secure and speedy border crossings, reducing risk as well as costs and time. 

With the significant trade potential of the ECO region, this new corridor will enhance connectivity and sets a milestone for transit facilitation, enabling further regional integration and more efficient access to global markets.

The launch comes on the heels of the first successful export shipments with TIR from Pakistan to Russia. TIR transports are also increasing from Pakistan to Azerbaijan via Iran, with NLC also running a first successful operation on this route earlier this week.

IRU Secretary General Umberto de Pretto and Turkic Council Secretary General Baghdad Amreyev have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to boost digital trade tools in the region.

The agreement sets the scene for enhanced cooperation on the application of digital transport tools by Turkic Council member states, including eTIR and eCMR, as well as ePermits and eVisas, along major transport routes connecting Asia to Europe. 

IRU Secretary General Umberto de Pretto and Turkic Council Secretary General Baghdad AmreyevThe MoU signing, on the side-lines of the 12th Transport and Communication Forum,  followed a General Directorates’ roundtable meeting, with delegates from transport ministries in Georgia, Iran, Moldova and Uzbekistan, as well as representatives from IRU, the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO), and the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC). 

A range of pressing industry issues were discussed, including digitalisation, green logistics, infrastructure investment, safe and secure truck parking areas, border crossings and supply chain issues relating to the pandemic.

At the meeting, Umberto de Pretto stressed the need for change and digitalisation to keep the road transport sector on a sustainable path and referenced the need for better coordination between authorities in terms of driver restrictions during the COVID pandemic. He also urged governments to maintain focus on waiting times at the border crossing points, and the need to facilitate border-crossing procedures to keep supply chains moving.

IRU Secretary General Umberto de Pretto has addressed 14 ministers of transport in a closed door round table session during the 12th Transport and Communication Forum, hosted by the Turkish Ministry of Transport.

He also called on governments to coordinate cross border sanitary measures, give workers priority access to vaccinations, implement a global electronic COVID certificate and use existing UN instruments, in particular electronic TIR and CMR, as well as e-permits and e-visas, to avoid physical contact at borders.

The transport ministers present were from governments and authorities in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Maldives, Mauritania, Morocco, Northern Cyprus, Palestine, Sudan and Turkey.
