"According to the data provided by IRU, Lithuanian carriers in the European Union descend only to the Polish neighbors on the number of TIR carnets declared under the TIR-EPD module. According to the aggregate figures Lithuania in other regions of the world only surpasses Iran, Turkey and Belarus", says Bronislavas Gelezhoonas, Chairman of the TIR and Customs Committee of the Lithuanian National Carriers Association Linava.
Association Linava in 2017 according to the number of TIR carnets issued rose from 7th to 6th place and overtook Belarus. More than in Lithuania the TIR carnets are issued in Turkey, Poland, Ukraine, Russia and Iran.
TIR-EPD is a modern business tool that allows you to gain a competitive advantage over other carriers. It is an electronic platform that saves both time and money. It is also possible to initiate a transit procedure with this system. It is not surprising, therefore, that in order to remain competitive, Lithuanian carriers accepted this innovation favorably and are one of the leaders in the world in terms of their use. There are also more advantages of the TIR-EPD system. B. Gelezhoonas points out that the Electronic Transit Declaration (ETD) is mandatory for crossing the border of the Russian Federation since January 1. An ETD is not required for those using the TIR-EPD system.
