First Indian ship carrying grains cargo moors at Chabahar port

The first container ship of India destined for Afghanistan from Indian port of Kandla, berthed at Iranian southeastern port of Chabahar,” said Hossein Shahdadi, an Iranian local official in Sistan and Balouchestan Province.

According to the official, the containers onboard the vessel will be unloaded at Iranian port to be later transported to Afghanistan through trucks.

Chabahar, which lies on the Gulf of Oman, provides India with an easier land-sea route to Afghanistan. The Indian government has committed $500 million to the development of Chabahar, and has offered to build a sprawling artery of roads and railways which is estimated to cost $15 billion.

Last year, India sent two cargos of wheat to Chabahar to be shipped off to Afghanistan, in a move to show the route’s viability and broaden the cargo flow before the port is fully operational.

Things to Know Before Trip
