As trade between Pakistan and China began via international road transport, the first convoy of cargo trucks was on its way from China to Pakistan.
Cross-border goods movement has begun for the first time under the United Nations International Road Transport Convention, in conjunction with Pakistan’s National Logistics Corporation and CEVA Logistics, a well-known Chinese enterprise.
This significant development occurred on the tenth anniversary of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project.
The Kashgar Yuanfang International Logistics Port Company hosted a ceremony to mark the formal debut of the TIR service. Representatives from the NLC, Kashgar Customs, Municipal Committee officials, CEVA Logistics, and the Cross-Border E-Commerce Association attended the occasion.
The speakers emphasised the significance of the TIR transport route from Kashgar to Islamabad and offered insight into future plans for TIR goods transit between the two countries.
The project will create an efficient and safe land link connecting Central Asian countries that are landlocked.
Cross-border movement of TIR items will be faster and safer because to simplified and coordinated customs processes at the crossings.
This will save not only time but also money. The first convoy of cargo trucks left for Pakistan at the conclusion of the event.
