The first TIR intermodal operation from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Turkey, via Iran, has been successfully completed with an Emirati truck arriving in the Mediterranean port of Iskendarun today.

The truck began its journey in Ras al Khaima before driving overland to the Port of Khalid in Sharjah, then by Ro-Ro (roll-on/roll-off) ferry to the port of Shaheed Bahonar in Bandar Abbas, Iran. The truck then continued by road towards Turkey, crossing the Bazargan-Gurbulak border and arriving in Iskendarun less than a week later. 

All border crossing customs procedures, including between the two Emirates, were handled with one TIR carnet.
