What is Transport of Goods Convention? The Customs Convention on International Transport of Goods under cover of TIR Carnets, 1975 (TIR Convention), is an international transit system under the auspices of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) to facilitate the seamless movement of goods within and amongst the parties to the Convention.

The TIR Convention establishes an international customs transit system with maximum facility to move goods: in sealed vehicles or containers and from a customs office of departure in one country to a customs office of destination in another country without requiring extensive and time-consuming border checks at intermediate borders, at the same time, providing customs authorities with the required security and guarantees.

What are the benefits of this convention? The Convention will help Indian traders to have access to fast, easy, reliable and hassle free international system for movement of goods by road or multi-modal means across the territories of other contracting parties.

TIR Carnet represents a guarantee for Customs duties and taxes and traffic in transit, there is no need for payment of such taxes and duties enroute and TIR carnet also serves as a Customs declaration, and hence it precludes the need to file multiple declarations satisfying national laws of the different transiting countries.

The TIR Convention can be an instrument for movement of goods along the International "North-South" Transport (INSTC) Corridor and would be helpful in boosting trade with the Central Asian Republics and other Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), particularly using ports in Iran like the Chabahar port.

India by joining the convention, can reduce or avoid the need for inspection of goods at intermediate borders as well as physical escort’s due to the efficient reciprocal recognition of Customs controls.

Customs clearance can take place at internal Customs locations thereby avoiding clearances at Border Crossing Points and ports that may often be congested.

The TIR Convention facilitates trade and international road transport by permitting customs-sealed vehicles and containers to transit nations without them being generally inspected at border crossings.

TIR’s single transit document also significantly reduces the risk of presenting inaccurate information, while only approved transporters and vehicles are allowed to operate.

Concluding Remark: India will be the 71st signatory to this international transit system. The two countries which signed TIR before India were Pakistan (2015) and China (2016).The compliance with the convention shall ensure enhanced security in the supply chain as only approved transporters and vehicles are allowed to operate in terms of the Convention. India’s participation in TIR may also facilitate trade with its eastern and western neighbors.
