Eurogate opens in Iran

[ March 16, 2016   //   ]

Forwarder Eurogate Logistics has set up a local network in Iran offering freight services throughout the Islamic republic, following the lifting of sanctions earlier this year.

Services include project and heavy lift shipping, warehousing and customs clearance for freight arriving by air, land or sea.

“As an oil-rich nation with a population of more than 77 million people, Iran offers huge potential for UK businesses and we are ready to help them capitalise on the opportunities,” said Eurogate’s managing director, Adam Nagy, who has recently returned from Tehran.

“Much of the country’s infrastructure needs renewing and industries such as automotive and aerospace also have significant requirements.

“The lifting of sanctions is also good news for the retail sector with strong consumer demand for western goods which is only likely to increase.”

Established in 1990, Eurogate specialises in opening up new markets for example in central and eastern Europe, Russia and central Asia.
