Iran’s Ports and Maritime Organization is planning to build a new oceanic port on Makran Coast in the southern Hormozgan Province and has currently launched studies. 
“This new port will be Iran's second oceanic port after Chabahar in the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan and accommodate larger vessels,” Chief Executive of PMO Mohammad Rastad was quoted as saying by Fars News Agency.
The official noted that the organization is mostly focused on building a container port with a capacity to handle the region’s throughput without reducing the share of other ports like Chabahar or Shahid Rajaee. 
Yet, the facility could also be designed to simultaneously handle wholesale cargos and essential goods.
