A clinker transportation rail line was recently launched in the southern Khuzestan Province’s Shalamcheh border checkpoint.
“Through this rail line, we expect clinker exports from Arvand to reach a total of 3 million tons by the end of the current Iranian year [March 20, 2021],” Ali Mousavi, the deputy head of Arvand Free Trade Zone for investment and business expansion affairs, was quoted as saying by IRNA.
The official noted that Iran exports 12 million tons of clinker every year and Iraq is the biggest export destination. 
“Prior to this, loading and unloading of clinker used to take place in Khorramshahr Port which had caused environmental hazards,” he said.
