Iran’s Chabahar Port has handled 340,000t of basic commodities and staple crops in October.
Hossein Shahdadi, deputy director general of Sistan-Baluchistan Ports and Maritime, said that October saw six ships dock at Chabahar Port carrying basic commodities and staples including barley and maize, raw sugar and rice with a total volume of 340,000t.
He also pointed to the loading and discharge of 70% of unloaded cargo from the port within the month and stated that the average daily flow of cargo from Chabahar port was 2,500t.
The main priority of the General Directorate is preventing the deposition of goods, and ensuring the optimal use of port capacities and acceleration of the flow of imported goods. According to Shahdadi, the factors influencing the deposition of goods in the ports of country are the unexpected changes in laws, the diversity of issued directives, and different interpretations of the directives.
