Digital TIR, Transport carnet

The TIR Carnet or Transports Internationaux Routiers is an International Customs Transit document that allows products to be transported internationally by road or multimodal between countries that have joined the TIR Convention while maintaining a high level of security. To strengthen the strategic partnership in the deployment of the Digital TIR carnet system, the Federal Customs Authority (FCA) signed a Tripartite Memorandum of Understanding with the Automobile and Touring Club of the United Arab Emirates (ATCUAE) and the International Road Transport Union (IRU). The FCA would have to coordinate with local authorities to adopt the system, as per the MoU. Reportedly, this system can assist in saving 80 percent of the time for the participating companies and helps to reduce cost by more than 45 percent, apart from easy transportation facility – boosting logistics performance. The agreement was adopted virtually and would mandate the three parties to adopt the “Digital TIR” Carnet.
