About 3.6 million tons of steel products were exported from Shahid Rajaei Port, Iran’s biggest container port near the Strait of Hormuz, in the last Iranian year (ended March 19), says deputy head of Hormozgan Ports and Maritime Organization. Mohammad Ali Asl-Saeedipour added that the figure is expected to rise by up to 15% this year. “The exports mainly included iron rods, steel slabs, iron pellets, rolls and sheets. Companies have now shifted from exports of raw material to those of mineral products,” IRNA quoted the official as saying.
