Transit through Iran’s northern ports rises 70%

Head of Iran’s Ports and Maritime Organization (PMO) has said transit of goods through Iranian ports along the Caspian Sea has increased by 70 percent in the current Iranian calendar year (started on March 21, 2022), the PMO portal reported.

“The traffic of all kinds of foreign goods to the country's commercial ports this year has increased between eight and 10 percent compared to the same period last year, and at the same time, we were able to record a 70 percent increase in transit from the Caspian Sea ports,” Ali-Akbar Safai said on Saturday at an annual meeting of the PMO directors.

According to Safaei, the total volume of the export, import, and transit through the country’s ports is expected to exceed 210 million tons by the end of the current Iranian year (March 20).

Referring to the PMO’s positive collaborations with the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Safaei emphasized: “The Islamic Republic of Iran, as one of the effective members of IMO, plays an effective role in the formation of new maritime regulations and laws.”
