More than 6 million tons of oil and non-oil products were transited through Iran’s 32 land and water border crossings during the eight months to Nov. 21, registering a 21% increase compared with the corresponding period of last year.

This was announced by the director general of Islamic Republic of Iran Road Maintenance and Transportation Organization’s Transit and International Transportation Office.

“Non-oil goods accounted for more than 4.28 million tons of the transited goods and the rest were oil products,” Reza Nafisi was also quoted as saying by the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development’s news portal.

With around 36.2%, Shaheed Rajaee Port accounted for the bulk of goods in transit during the period. Parviz Khan (17%) and Bazargan (10.8%) border crossings came next.  

Shahid Rajaee, Iran’s biggest container port at the mouth of Strait of Hormuz, accounted for around 60% of all Iranian port activities last year (March 2016-17).
