Macedonia successfully implements IRU TIR-EPD
The IRU TIR electronic pre-declarations (TIR-EPD) online application has just been officially implemented in Macedonia. The move extends the geographical scope of TIR-EPD to 26 countries. TIR Carnet holders will now be able to benefit from facilitated border crossings by submitting TIR pre-declarations electronically and free of charge to Macedonian customs authorities, thereby saving transport operators both time and costs.
TIR-EPD also allows customs officers to perform risk assessment measures far in advance of the truck’s arrival at the border. (ben)
