Global, seamless and certain
TIR is the easiest, safest and most reliable way to move goods across international borders, saving time and money for transport operators and customs authorities.
TIR is the world’s only universal transit system
Since 1949, TIR has made international freight transits faster, more efficient and more secure, helping increase trade, boosting economic growth and making communities stronger.
Thousands of transport operators, drivers, and customs officials in almost 60 countries use TIR every day.
IRU provides a wide range of innovative IT tools and services that help speed up TIR. These tools are ASKTIRweb, SafeTIR, Real-Time SafeTIR (RTS) and TIR Electronic Pre-Declaration (TIR-EPD).
Flexible training modules are available for transport operators, customs authorities and transport associations.
To take TIR into the future, IRU is conducting a joint pilot project with the UNECE between Turkey and Iran to assess how the TIR System can shift from paper-based to a fully electronic ‘eTIR’ System.
