With the establishment of shipping lines, it became possible to transit goods directly between the ports of India and Chabahar on a weekly basis, said the Director General of Ports and maritime of Sistan and Baluchestan .
PMO News Portal - Regarding the development of cooperation
with India, Behrouz Aghaei stated that with the establishment shipping lines
between the ports of India and Chabahar, direct transit of goods became
possible between these ports on a two-week basis since February last year.
He continued: According to the schedule, the Liner Shipping
Schedule has been set up on a weekly basis since August 26, with two ships calling
Chabahar port directly from Indian ports and the third ship will enter Shahid
Beheshti Port of Chabahar on August 14.
By launching this line, the fixed price of each container of
goods departing form Indian ports and calling Chabahar port has the advantage of being competitive compared
to other ports in the country.
Aghaei also mentioned 60 to 90 percent of discounts for the
ship owners and shipping line at Chabahar port and emphasized that India is
considering a 40% reduction in freight costs between Navavashiva and Kandela
ports and the Chabahar port in order to increase the volume of traffic and
encourage ship owners and shipping lines.
