Non-oil exports from Chabahar Port grow by 3.5 times

Tehran (ISNA) – The non-oil exports from the Chabahar Port grew by 3.5 times and the loading/unloading operations showed 5.5 percent growth since March 2022 compared to the same period in the last year.

The non-oil exports from Chabahar Port grew by 3.5 times during nine months since March 2022 compared to the same period in the last year, according to the director-general of Sistan and Baluchistan’s Ports and Maritime Organization (PMO).

The loading and unloading operations have also had 5.5 percent increase.

The enhanced coordination between the Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Line (IRISL) and the Ports and Maritime Organization (PMO) has led to the launch of regular lines from and to the Chabahar Port and increase of container operations. Moreover, the costs of container operations have decreased along the routes of Southeast Asia, India, and the Persian Gulf countries.

In this sense, the first 6,500 TEU container ship from the Southeast Asia arrived at Shahid Beheshti Port in Chabahar on December 31.

Provision of good services for all commodities, reducing the costs, and increasing freight and ship transports in Chabahar are among top priorities of Chabahar Port for optimal use of current infrastructures and development of marine businesses.
