Chabahar port activity gains momentum

Financial Tribune – For the first time, all five berths of Chabahar’s Shahid Beheshti Port have been serving eight vessels simultaneously since last week, Hossein Ebrahimi, an official with Sistan-Baluchestan Ports and Maritime Organization, said on Sunday.

“The rising containerized traffic at Chabahar Port is a harbinger of economic development in Iran’s southeastern coasts,” he was quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.

Last Wednesday, a wheat shipment arrived at Chabahar from India en route to Afghanistan.

The 435 TEU containers holding 10,000 tons of wheat were delivered by the ship Kashan from India, as the second part of India’s new round of aid package to Afghanistan.
