Non-oil exports from Shahid Bahonar Port in Hormozgan Province grew 35% to 324,132 tons in the first three months of the current Iranian year (March 21-June 21) over the similar period of previous year, announced the port’s managing director, Mohammad Mohseni.
Major exports from the port include petrochemicals, agricultural products, minerals, bitumen and construction material, shipped to the countries of Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean region, IRNA reported.
According to Mohseni, non-oil imports to the port declined by 66% compared with the similar period of last year. Rice, dried fruits, construction material, textile, vehicles and home appliances are among major non-oil commodities imported through the port.
The port handled a total of 496,618 tons of cargo (including both oil and non-oil products) during the period, up 11% compared with the similar period of last year.
Shahid Bahonar Port also transported 7,365 passengers between Iran and the Persian Gulf countries in the period, according to the official.
Shahid Bahonar is one of the most active southern ports of Iran for both passenger and freight transport. The port enjoys a strategic position due to its proximity to the Persian Gulf littoral states and the Iranian islands of Qeshm and Kish.
