Phase 2 of Shahid Beheshti Port Development Plan underway
Director General of Sistan and Baluchestan Ports and Maritime: Chabahar Port has the capacity to discharge 12,000 tons of goods and 2,000 tons of staples per day.

PMO News Portal - Behrouz Aghaee stated that given the high capacity of importing a share of the essential commodities of the country through the largest oceanic port of Iran, several follow-up meeting have been held to arrange the import of staple needed by the eastern provinces through this General Office and Chabahar port.

By holding numerous meetings and visiting of government officials, the Ministry of Commerce instructed two large state-owned companies to transfer 50% of their imported goods through the Chabahar port; and since October this year we have witnessed the arrival of staple cargo ships at the port.

Aghaee added: Due to the proper infrastructure of unloading and loading and in order to prevent the deposition of goods, more than 70% of the unloaded staples have been discharged from the port. Transportation of staples through Chabahar port will reduce the prices and traffic for ships waiting for disembarkation in other southern ports of the country.

Aghaee added that Phase 2 of the Shahid Beheshti Port Development Plan is underway. Furthermore 30 pieces Strategic equipment including 9 offshore cranes, 13 pieces loading and unloading equipment have been assembled and operationalized in Chabahar port.
