International Road Transport Union - IRU

Every item on every store shelf, in every office and home, has been on a truck at one point.  Trucks are the lifeblood of all economies efficiently interconnecting all businesses, markets and transport modes. However, non-harmonised procedures change from one country to the next creating long border waiting times - an economic and social nightmare for Customs and businesses alike. Fortunately, there is a global, multimodal, secure and affordable solution called TIR, which cuts overall transport times by 40% and costs by up to 30%, and is fully compliant with the WCO Safe Framework.

Ratified by 68 countries, the United Nations TIR Convention has proven most effective for 60 years in 58 countries worldwide. Under TIR, any containerised shipments are sealed and unsealed by Customs at departure and final destination, eliminating redundant checks at borders in between. The IRU, as the global voice of the road transport industry with over 65 years experience in facilitating and securing trade, has been mandated by the United Nations to manage TIR.

Thanks to state-of-the-art risk management apps developed by the IRU, TIR is now highly computerised and is the only truly global Customs transit system in the world guaranteeing the full security and traceability of goods transported.

For more than three and a half decades, Oracle has been the leader in database software. And as it has further developed technologies and acquired best-in-class companies over the years, that leadership has expanded to the entire technology stack, from servers and storage, to database and middleware, through applications and into the cloud.

It all began when Larry Ellison saw an opportunity other companies missed: a description of a working prototype for a relational database. No company had committed to commercializing the technology, but Ellison and co-founders Bob Miner and Ed Oates realized the tremendous business potential of the relational database model. None of them realized at the time that the company they formed would change the face of business computing.

Throughout its history Oracle has proved it can build for the future on the foundation of its innovations and its knowledge of customer challenges and successes analyzed by the best technical and business minds in the world.

What does Oracle have in store for tomorrow? We will continue to provide our customers with hardware and software engineered to work together—integrated from disk to applications─that meet their business needs and solve their business problems. And we will continue to innovate and to lead the industry, while always making sure that we focus on solving the problems of the customers who rely on our technology.
