The KTAI corridor, which has recently been launched following last week’s first successful TIR pilot operation from Shahid Rajaee Port in the southern Hormozgan Province to Kyrgyzstan, offers a shorter route from Iran to Central Asia.
The statement was made by Behnam Faramarzian, the caretaker of international transportation and TIR Carnet department of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mining and Agriculture.
