Federal Customs Department of Russia (ФТС) will stop accepting customs transit under TIR coverage as from 14 August 2013, as it advised in a letter recently.
The TIR covers customs and other duties in the international road transportation, and is issued by the International Road Transport Union (Geneva). The TIR convention comprises 68 countries including Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus and has been in place since 1975. The convention is meant to facilitate cargo flows by road through a guarantee system for customs duties to transit and import countries.
The decision of Russian Authorities may significantly impact cargo flows by road through and to Customs Union. Long waiting lines on the borders of the customs union, large delays and additional costs are a few obvious possibilities. Trucking cost to CIS will most probably increase.
