The Republic of North Macedonia’s national road transport association, Best Mobility NTA, has joined IRU as its newest member.
Best Mobility NTA has joined IRU, the world road transport organisation.
The Customs Administration of North Macedonia has also now appointed Best Mobility NTA as the country’s new TIR national transport association.
IRU Secretary General Umberto de Pretto said, “We’re very happy to welcome Best Mobility into both the IRU and TIR families.”
“TIR, which is turning 75 this year, continues to be the only global transit system, ensuring the efficiency, security and sustainability of transport and transit. As a landlocked country, road transport is even more important to North Macedonia’s trade and connectivity,” he added.
Best Mobility Chair Olivera Miovska said, “As North Macedonia’s national road transport association, we’re delighted to join IRU.”
“In addition to TIR, IRU and its global network of members have an unmatched knowledge of the road transport industry. We’re confident that they will help us to facilitate efficient and secure trade in North Macedonia and regionally,” she added.
Recognised by government authorities as a viable guarantor of the TIR system, Best Mobility NTA is well placed to be the voice of more than 1,600 Macedonian operators involved in international road transport.
Best Mobility NTA also promotes and assists road transport operators in pursuing national and international transport best practices, helping the sector to flourish and provide vital services to businesses and communities.
What is TIR?
The TIR system enables goods to be shipped from a country of origin to a country of destination in sealed load compartments that are controlled by customs via a multilateral, mutually recognised system.
TIR streamlines procedures at borders, reducing the administrative burden for customs authorities and for transport and logistics companies. It cuts border waiting times significantly, saving time and money.
