What is TIR?
‘TIR’ stands for Transports Internationaux Routiers (International Road Transport) and is an international harmonised system of Customs control that facilitates trade and transport whilst effectively protecting the revenue of each Country through which goods are carried. The IRU TIR Department, in conjunction with the IRU Academy, provides services to increase awareness of the TIR System and to build the understanding of TIR users (Customs Authorities, IRU Member Associations, TIR Carnet Holders, etc) of TIR operations and procedures. For a simple introduction to the TIR System, the IRU has developed TIR Information Leaflets in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic and Turkish.
