Pakistan has exported its first mango consignment to Russia via road, announced Prime Minister’s Adviser on Commerce and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood.

“I congratulate Ishfaq & Co on becoming the first company to have exported mangoes to Russia via road under the TIR,” Dawood said in a Twitter post.

“It opens new vistas for our exports to Russia & Europe via land route,” he added.

According to a press release by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), the mango consignment left Pakistan via the Taftan/Mirjawa border with Iran. The consignment will reach Russia via the Tehran-Astara (Azerbaijan)-Astrakhan route.

This instant TIR transportation will also allow kinnow exports, which will take around 10 days to reach Moscow through the Tehran-Astara-Astra Khan route as compared to the sea route from Karachi to St Petersburg that takes around 35 days.

“I urge our exporters to utilise this route which is not only more economical but also takes less time,” added Dawood.

Pakistan has made major gains when it comes to the export of mangoes with Australia and Japan opening an export facility for Pakistan.
