Transited goods from Iran Surpass 6 Million Tons in 6 Months

Economy - Over 6.760 million tons of commodities have been transited through Iran in the first half of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21 – Sept 22), a transportation official said.

Director-General of Border Transit and Terminals of the Roads Maintenance and Transportation Organization Mohammad Javad Atrchian said that over 6.494 million tons or 96% of oil and non-oil goods were transited on roads and 265 thousand tons or 4% by railroad.

He said improvement of transportation infrastructure and strengthening of transit corridors through Iran has led to an increase of 6% in roads transit in comparison with the same period last year.

Atrchian said that 3.182 million tons of transited goods were oil products and 3.576 were non-oil goods.

Iran is located in the South-North corridor with the Iranian part of the corridor starting in Chabahar in the South and stretching up to the Northeastern city of Mashhad.
