TIR (Transports International Routiers - fr.) is a type of international trucking presuming a special mode of transportation used in accordance with TIR Convention adopted in Geneva in 1975.
"Credo Trans" arranges TIR transportation of goods from the European cities and the ports in Finland.
TIR considerably simplifies the procedure of road haulage in Europe and other regions. Besides, the TIR Convention eases carriers’ and customs authorities’ ways.
TIR Carnet is an international customs document allowing goods to travel across one or more international borders with minimal customs involvement.
A special TIR Carnet document is used in trucking under TIR mode. It is a block of up to 20 sheets torn off when crossing a border.
All the trailers and containers transporting TIR goods should be secured with customs seals. The vehicles should be provided with special permission documents enabling them to carry out such a carriage.
The transportation scheme is easy. The vehicle is loaded at a warehouse in Europe, moves to the RF border or is delivered there by ferry, crosses the border in transit and goes through the customs clearance at the place of destination.
TIR is frequently used in multi-modal transportation. For example, having arrived at a Finnish port, the cargo is collected by a motor vehicle, crosses the inland border in transit and then gets to Moscow or another Russian city to pass through customs clearance there.
