Importers who have completed their customs clearance procedures but fail to discharge their goods from warehouses at the ports of entry will be heavily penalized, the head of Ports and Maritime Organization of Iran said. 
“A progressive increase in warehouse charges is one of those penalties,” the news outlet of the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development also quoted Mohammad Rastad as saying. 
Noting that the volume of essential goods at Imam Khomeini Port in Iran’s southern Khuzestan Province has reached 3 million tons, Rastad said it takes 2-3 months on average for imports to be cleared from Iranian ports. 
“We are working to speed up the clearance procedures of essential goods from ports in order to avert any future problems associated with the capacity of warehouses,” he said.
