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.
