The Iran-Afghanistan-Tajikistan-Kyrgyzstan corridor was created for the rapid movement of goods from the southern ports of Iran to the countries of Central Asia

The Iranian authorities announce the opening of a new corridor for the supply of goods from the southern ports of Iran to the countries of Central Asia, writes ASIA-Plus.

The Iran-Afghanistan-Tajikistan-Kyrgyzstan corridor was created for the rapid movement of goods from the southern ports of Iran to the countries of Central Asia, said Director General of the Iranian Transit Bureau (IRICA) Mostafa Ayati.

“This corridor was launched by IRICA in cooperation with the International Road Transport Union (IRU) and the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) under the Convention on International Carriage of Goods,” the Iranian official said.

He noted that one of the convenience for exporters of goods will be the use of the so-called “TIR Carnet”, which is a customs document issued for the international transit of goods. The presence of this book will allow you to cross the border using a simplified cargo inspection procedure.

Ayat noted that the first five Iranian trucks have already been sent to Tajikistan via Afghanistan via an open transport corridor.

“This new route opens up the region for trade and development and will allow forwarders and transport companies to realize significant cost and time savings in transporting goods,” he added.

It should be noted that for the last two years, road cargo transportation between Tajikistan and Iran has been carried out bypassing Turkmenistan, since this country, for still unknown reasons, does not allow Tajik vehicles to cross its territory.
