Tuscor Lloyds has moved Afghanistan bound cargo – LCL/FCL, projects, and conventional freight for some time now and holds a strong position in the market as the country rebuilds.
Afghanistan is one of the most featured countries in the global news. It is a country which has been tarnished by wars for many years but now requires efficient and economical logistics as its people rebuild for the future. A country of 29 million people without sea ports or railways solely survives on road transportation. These roads are almost 12,350Km long and interconnected with all major cities and towns.
Tuscor Lloyds has years of experience in handling Afghan Cargo, with its agents now providing services to all major destinations in Afghanistan i.e. Kabul, Kandahar, Jalalabad & Herat. All cargo moves via Pakistan through the Afghan Transit Trade Structure, where vessel calling at either QICT port Qasim or Karachi port. A vast and efficient railway and road network is used to move Afghan Transit Trade through the neighbouring country. A separate import manifest is lodged with the customs to ensure smooth & prompt delivery of containers/cargo. With efficient logistics the arrival time from Karachi port to Kandahar via Chamman is only 04-05 days whereas a delivery in Kabul only takes up to 7-8 days from Karachi port.
There is no rail network in Afghanistan and all trade is conducted by land route from Pakistan and other neighbouring countries. Cargo for Afghanistan in transit via Pakistan (Karachi Port) is exempted from Customs Duty and taxes in Pakistan. However, a Special Customs Cell processes and examines the cargo at Karachi Port.
Due to the location and current political scenario of Afghanistan very few freight forwarders are serving these destinations but Tuscor Lloyd has once again proved to be a pioneer. For the first time the UK and its neighbouring EU countries can now send regular commercial LCL cargo to Afghanistan and being the first off the mark, Tuscor Lloyds is currently the only forwarder offering LCL shipment services to Afghanistan.
Tuscor Lloyd with its partners office located in Afghanistan can also assist their customers with documentation as required by Afghan customs/ Pakistan Customs – a big opportunity for exporters to reach new markets.
Tuscor Lloyds makes shipping to Afghanistan simple and easy.
