Shahid Beheshti Port in Chabahar is capable to load any ship with any capacity, Sistan-Baluchestan Ports and Maritime Department’s Director General Behrouz Aghaei said, Trend reports citing ILNA.

"We carried unloading and loading ships in Chabahar Port in the past, but now, Shahid Beheshti Port in Chabahar is capable to load any ship with any capacity, while we can easily discharge any container with over 300 tonnes of shipment at this port," Aghaei said.

Referring to some maritime restrictions at the port, the director general said that from June to September, there was a risk to maritime operations and ship discharges due to the height of the wave, but now the problem is resolved.

"We have imported 30 strategic and sensitive machinery units through the Chabahar port," Aghaei said pointing to the strategic importance of the Chabahar port.

“Since the reconstruction of this port, nine ships, containing exporting goods from Afghanistan, have been transported through this port,” the director general said.

“While Afghanistan projected $3,000 for transit per container, we did this at the price of $1,860,” said Aghaie. “We also deliver the goods to Afghan merchants within about 25 to 30 days timeframe at Milak border.”

“Despite the stagnation in some economic areas of the country, transit through this port has increased by 100 percent compared to last year, and the volume of freight evacuation has increased by 56 percent compared to the year 2017,” Aghaie added. “We also exported 5,000 tons of raw cement products from this port.”

“It is estimated that more than one billion tonnes of minerals can be exported by Sistan and South Khorasan provinces,” the director general noted. “There are currently 400 containers loaded at the port.”

"Since the beginning of October this year, 340,000 tonnes of basic commodities have been imported through the port," he said.
