TIR-EPD Green Lanes
Today’s unacceptably long border waiting times that range from many hours to several days entail additional transport time and costs, negatively impacting trade. The IRU, with its Members, provides an effective and simple solution for all customs authorities: the new IRU TIR Electronic Pre-Declaration (TIR-EPD) Green Lanes. TIR-EPD Green Lanes are dedicated lanes on both sides of a border crossing point. The transmission of electronic pre-declarations allows customs authorities to assess risks and determine in advance which truck should be subject to a specific control. TIR trucks permitted by customs to use TIR-EPD Green Lanes will only be subject to the scanning and stamping of their TIR Carnet, thus enjoying very speedy customs control allowing for a massive reduction of border waiting times and transport costs.
