17 Major Shipping Lines Back to Iranian Ports 17 Major Shipping Lines Back to Iranian Ports

Seventeen major global shipping lines have resumed their services to Iran since the removal of nuclear sanctions, says CEO of Ports and Maritime Organization Mohammad Saeednejad. “As a result of the nuclear deal, Iran’s marine activities are now completely back to normal,” the official was quoted as saying by IRNA. Mediterranean Shipping Company, the world’s second-largest shipping line in terms of container vessel capacity, and Evergreen Line are among the top shipping lines that have resumed their cooperation with Iranian ports. France’s CMA CGM, the world’s third largest container shipping group, also called at Shahid Rajaei, Iran’s biggest container port at the mouth of the Strait of Hormuz, early August. The company teamed up with Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines to share vessel capacity and jointly operate routes and marine container terminals. Most recently, Maersk Line expanded its footprint in Iran by adding a second port of call less than three months after it resumed services to the country following the lifting of sanctions. The Danish carrier, which suspended services in 2012, has added the port of Bushehr to its Iran coverage. Its service was relaunched with calls to Bandar Abbas in October.
