Iran-Europe HGV Services Launched

 Iran-Europe HGV Services Launched Iran-Europe HGV Services Launched

The first heavy goods vehicle groupage transport services from Europe to Iran are now being operated by DB Schenker—a division of German railroad company Deutsche Bahn AG that focuses on logistics.

According to a report in Switzerland-based International Transport Journal, the goods are consolidated in Austria and hauled via the Balkan states and Turkey to the Iranian border.

The first trucks left Salzburg, Austria, and have already arrived in Tehran after a 10-day trip. The cargo that the HGVs conveyed included around 22 tons of infrastructure material for the construction of a steel plant in Iran.

DB Schenker has also resumed air and sea freight services to Iran. The company is now preparing rail freight offers and wants to establish its own national affiliate in Iran.
