Two truckers have left Shahid Rajaee Port in the southern Hormozgan Province to Uzbekistan via Afghanistan to mark the first successful TIR pilot operation along the Iran-Afghanistan-Uzbekistan corridor, Mostafa Ayati, an official with the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration, said on Monday.  
“The new corridor offers an economical and shorter route between Iran and Central Asian countries, and helps promote trade and cooperation among regional countries and improve peace and security in Afghanistan,” he was quoted as saying by IRNA.  
“On July 26, the so-called KTAI [Kyrgyzstan-Tajikistan-Afghanistan-Iran] corridor also opened officially following the successful TIR pilot operation of seven trucks from Iran’s southern Port of Shahid Rajaee, which crossed Dogharoun border checkpoint into Afghanistan and then into Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.”
