More TIR routes along China - Central Asia line
Ceva Logistics, a member of the International Road Transport Union (IRU), has activated a new TIR route that is essential for connecting China with Central Asia.
Loaded with industrial components, auto parts and daily necessities, the first TIR truck departed from western China’s inland city of Kashgar, transiting through Kyrgyzstan, and successfully arriving in Uzbekistan’s second-largest city, Samarkand, a journey of approximately 1,100 km.
After the pilot run, Ceva expects more regular TIR operations on this new route, around 100 trucks every month, the forwarder said. Furthermore, Ceva plans to optimise ground and rail product portfolios by opening direct routes and strengthening intermodal capabilities. (ben)
