“Transit in the context of cargo transportation is a key concept, meaning the passage of goods from one country or region to another through a third country. In essence, goods enter a country through one customs office and exit the same country through another customs office.
In general, road transit of goods from Iran requires precise coordination, meticulous management of documents and customs processes, the use of suitable transportation modes, and the utilization of technology for accurate tracking and monitoring. At Khadem Logistics Transportation Company, we use our experience and knowledge in this field to arrange the transit of your goods from Iran to your desired destination in the best possible way to ensure timely and safe delivery.
Some advantages of transit include:
- Cost Reduction: Using transit instead of direct routes can reduce transportation costs, as customs, taxes, and related transportation costs in the transit country may be lower.
- Better Timing: Transit can improve transportation timing and reduce the time required for goods to reach their destination. This is especially important in air transportation.
- Increased Reach: Using transit can help businesses and countries access new markets and expand their business activities.
- Improved Communication Channels: With the passage of goods and travelers between countries, communication channels between countries are strengthened, leading to international collaboration.
This is why many companies and carriers use road transit as an economical and efficient method for international transportation. Ultimately, choosing the appropriate transportation method based on the needs and specifications of goods, costs, and desired timing is crucial for successful transportation. Transit between countries is sometimes done solely by road or through a combination of transportation methods like road-rail-sea.
Generally, goods passing through Iran’s route are declared at border customs. Types of transit include definite import, temporary import, temporary entry for processing, return, domestic transit, and foreign transit. In foreign transit, goods are declared at the entry customs and confirmed receipt at the destination customs, then exit the country.
Required documents for foreign transit include:
– Cargo manifest
– Packing list
– Introduction letter for representatives acting on behalf of cargo owners for legal entities
– Business card
– Transit pass for cargo entry
– Guarantee letter or legal commitment
– Road CHR guide
