Iran’s ocean port of Chabahar reports record activity

Chabahar, IRNA – Iran’s ocean port of Chabahar has reported record activity related to loading and unloading, according to a local official.

The deputy director of planning, development management, and resources at the ports and maritime affairs of Iran’s Southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan informed IRNA on Monday that transshipment at Chabahar port began in late January 2024.

During the past two months, over 8,000 containers were moved between Chabahar port and domestic ports, he added.

From March 21, 2023, to March 20, 2024, Chabahar port witnessed significant growth in container operations, marking a notable milestone.

This surge in container activity is attributed to two factors:

  • the launch of direct shipping routes to China, India, and the UAE, achieved through collaboration with the Islamic Republic shipping group and economic stakeholders, and
  • the implementation of a transshipment line connecting Chabahar to local ports.

Last year, the container unloading and loading record at Chabahar port reached over 66,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), representing a remarkable 155% increase compared to the previous Iranian calendar year (March 21, 2022 – March 20, 2023).
