Gebrüder Weiss targets Iran

June 3 - Gebrüder Weiss sees its recent introduction of a direct consolidated freight link between Sofia in Bulgaria and the Iranian capital of Tehran, as the start of the expansion of its portfolio of services for the country, including FCL transport and

Daily direct freight runs are made from the Gebrüder Weiss sites in Maria-Lanzendorf, Vienna (Austria) and Dunaharaszti (Hungary) to Sofia, where goods bound for Iran are consolidated. The standard transit time is usually six working days, departing on a weekly basis.
 
Since the sanctions were lifted, Iran has been positioning itself as a haven for foreign investors, with the Iranian government offering tax incentives to that effect. "The Bulgaria-Iran route also enables us to give our European customers rapid access to this growth region by land," says Thomas Moser, director and regional manager south east / CIS at Gebrüder Weiss.
 
Gebrüder Weiss is relying on the longstanding transport experience of its partner Iran Europe to transport the goods across the final stretch in Iran. The international transport company has comprehensive experience in customs clearance and has its own branches in the central economic regions, primarily along the Middle East Gulf and in the north of the country.
