Transports Internationaux Routiers (TIR) Convention stands as a pivotal multilateral initiative designed to streamline and standardize the administrative procedures associated with global road transport. TIR boasts an impressive membership of 78 Contracting Parties globally, with an escalating trend as more nations express interest in affiliating with this transformative system. The National Logistics Corporation (NLC) initiated its first commercial TIR operation in 2021, establishing crucial land route links with Turkiye and Azerbaijan. Since this milestone, the NLC has been at the forefront of driving regional connectivity, steadily expanding its network to include China, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan & Uzbekistan in its list of destinations.
One of our core strengths lies in NLC's specialization in TIR road transportation, a testament to the proficiency of the organization in facilitating seamless cross-border movements of cargo. The matchless expertise in this domain ensures that international deliveries are executed efficiently and punctually, offering a one-window solution for all logistics needs.
