TEHRAN- Over 1. 07 million twenty-foot-equivalent units (TEUs) of commodities were loaded and unloaded at Shahid Rajaee Port, in south of Iran, during the first half of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21-September 22), according to the director general of Ports and Maritime Department of Hormozgan Province.

Allah-Morad Afifipour put the exported and imported commodities at 804,14 TEUs and transited goods at 197,377 TEUs during the mentioned time span, IRNA reported.

In late February, the third phase of the development plan of Iran’s biggest container port, Shahid Rajaee port, was launched in the presence of President Hassan Rouhani and Transport and Urban Development Minister Abbas Akhoundi.

Upon the completion of this phase within three years, using 8. 6 trillion rials (about $204. 7 million), the port’s capacity will be increased to eight million TEUs, the Head of Ports and Maritime Organization Mohammad Rastad said.



Mount Damavand is the highest peak in Iran and the highest volcano in Asia.
