Lahore: According to reports published on Tuesday, National Logistics Cell (NLC) trucks transporting high-value products from Pakistan completed their first-ever one-side route to Turkey and Azerbaijan under the Transports Internationaux Routiers (TIR) convention.
According to the NLC spokeswoman, the trucks began their 5,000-kilometer journey from Karachi on September 27 and arrived in Baku and Istanbul via Tehran on October 7th night. This first initiative has gotten a lot of support from the business community and the governments of Azerbaijan and Turkey, according to the report.
In addition, events were organised in Baku and Istanbul to commemorate the reopening of two regional international highway networks. Pakistan’s Ambassador to Turkey, Muhammad Syrus Sajjad Qazi, described the agreement as a “milestone achievement” that will improve road connections and enhance bilateral trade between the two countries.
Raw materials, computers, home appliances, dried fruits, carpets, furniture, textile-related equipment, plastic household products, non-perishable food items, and electronics were among the high-value goods mentioned. These things cannot be checked on the route and will be opened at their destination once they have been put in containers following legal procedures.
