75% Growth in Non-Oil Exports from Anzali Port / 46% Growth in Container Loading and Unloading Operations in Guilan Ports
The Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province announced a 75% increase in non-oil exports in Anzali Port Complex in the first quarter of this year compared to the same period last year and said: “container loading and unloading in Guilan Ports has increased by 46%.”

According to the Public Relations of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, Dr. Hamidreza Abaie told reporters on Tuesday: “In the first quarter of this year, non-oil exports (including cereals, hardware, wood and boards, glass, concentrate, construction materials And ...) from the port of Astara has also grown by 25%.”

He announced the amount of loading goods from Anzali port complex as 73% and added: “in the first quarter of this year, loading from Astara port increased by 25% compared to the same period last year.”

The Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, stating that the loading and unloading of containers in the ports of Guilan Province has increased by 46 percent, noted: “In the first months of 1400, the transit of non-oil goods from the ports of Anzali and Astara increased by 232 and 6.5 percent, respectively, compared to the same period of the previous year.”

Anzali port complex with a 300-year history in the field of maritime transport has now been a well-known brand in the region and has always been considered by merchants and traders in the country.

Anzali port complex is one of the oldest ports in Iran and one of the most important and largest ports in the north of the country. This port complex, having been located in international corridors such as Nostrak and Trasica, etc., has long been responsible for a prominent role in the maritime transport industry with the Caspian Sea Littoral States and European countries.

Anzali port with 17 berths and the possibility of loading and unloading 10 million tons of goods per year is the largest and most equipped Iranian port on the Caspian Sea.

Unfortunately, in spite of all the coordination, measures and consultations carried out in attracting cargo and goods and using modern and up-to-date equipment, which caused us to witness a growth of up to 35% in 1399 AH compared to the previous year, with the abolition of VAT exemption in the first quarter of this year, we have faced a reduction in discharges of more than 20%.

The multi-purpose port of Astara with an area of 55 hectares is the first private sector port in the country and the closest and most cost-effective route for trade and transportation of goods between Asia, Africa and Europe and has 2 berths.
