9.3 Million Tons of Goods Transited from Iran Last Year: Official

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The head of Iran’s Road Maintenance and Transportation Organization said that over 9,300,000 tons of goods, transited by Iranian and foreign transport fleets, crossed Iran’s territory in the last Persian calendar year of 1401 (March 21, 2022 to March 20, 2023).

Bazargan Border Terminal and Shahid Rajaei Port were the most active transit borders in the country with 16 and 15 percent growth respectively as compared to the same period a year earlier, Dariush Amani stated.

Reopening the common borders with Turkmenistan and reducing the bilateral passing tariffs between the two countries and also the keenness of foreign traders and transportation companies on transiting their goods from Iranian land and territory are among the reasons for the growth, he stated.

According to the principled approach of the current administration of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, which is based on political and business convergence with neighboring countries, the pursuit of active regional diplomacy within the framework of regional economic treaties such as Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) and Eurasian Economic Union (UAEU) as well as the possibility of realization of objective of 20 million tons of goods  from the Iranian land will be possible in the current year, the deputy roads minister added.
