This is one of the first endeavors to introduce Pakistani fresh fruits and indigenous goods to Russia
ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Customs, Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), has processed the first consignment of export of fresh mangoes (White Chaunsa) from Pakistan to Moscow, Russia under the TIR Convention.
The exporter of the said consignment is M/s. Ishfaq & Co, Okara, Sahiwal.
FBR has stated that this is one of the first endeavors to introduce Pakistani fresh fruits and indigenous goods to Russia.
It will help the Pakistani traders to capture markets not only in Russia but also Europe by land route.
The consignment has left Pakistan at Taftan/Mirjawa (Iran) border and is destined for Moscow via Tehran-Astara (Azebaijan)-Astrakhan (Russia) route.
The road distance from Taftan to Moscow via Astara is 4600 Km and it will be covered in about 7 days.
The instant TIR transportation will open this route for kinnow exports as it will take about 10 days to reach Moscow via Tehran-Astara-Astra Khan route. This shortening of distance will increase Kinnow and other exports to Russian Federation and EU.
