91% Growth in Exports of Non-Oil Goods in Anzali Port Complex / 3 Quality Measurement Factors in Each Port

91% Growth in Exports of Non-Oil Goods in Anzali Port Complex / 3 Quality Measurement Factors in Each Port
Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, referring to the 91% growth in exports of non-oil goods in Anzali Port Complex, said: "Quality of efficiency in each port are measured by three factors: speed, cost and safety."

Dr. Hamidreza Abaie in an interview with the Public Relations of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, while congratulating the government week, said: “Ports in any country are valuable and strategic assets and are among the factors accelerating the process of economic development of any country, because they are the points of entry and exit of goods.”

Stating that the quality of efficiency in each port is measured by three factors of “speed, cost and safety”, he said: “Reducing time and port service, increasing and updating behind-the-line and front-line equipment, as well as playing a role in logistics and supply chain by coordinating with shipping lines and government and regulatory agencies in maritime transport (such as transport licenses issued in cooperation with customs and other institutions) caused the acceleration of port activities and reduced costs for cargo owners.”

Director General of Ports and Maritime Authority of Guilan Province, referring to the third factor, added: “measures such as installing of navigation aids, dredging in order to city-port interaction, dredging the turning basin of Guilan ports in order to ensure the safety and security of ports have been done. As a result, we are currently witnessing that the sixth round of the Sea Cup tournament will be held in Anzali port complex with the presence of military forces and frigates of Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and the Islamic Republic of Iran due to its high security and safety. Meanwhile, high security has led to economic prosperity and as a result, the simultaneous presence of eight commercial ships at the berths of Anzali port.”

Stating that these three factors, along with the right policies, led to a 36% increase in the loading and unloading operations of Guilan ports last year, Abaie said: “the existence of oppressive sanctions and the spread of the Corona virus could not overcome the ports of Guilan province and hinder the economic movement of the country. In this regard, despite the imposition of VAT from the beginning of this year and the increase in the cost of goods passing through the port of Anzali compared to last year (and even the ports of Nowshahr and Amirabad), with the support of the Executive Board of the Ports and Maritime Organization and obtaining discounts for dues and duties imposed on goods and ships, we witnessed a 3% increase in loading and unloading  operations and a 91% increase in exports of non-oil goods in Anzali Port Complex in the first 5 months of this year compared to the same period last year.”

Referring to the launch of regular Ro-Ro shipping lines in Guilan province, he stated: “In addition to the export development approach (especially in the field of domestic production of construction and agricultural products), ports of Guilan province are looking to use the capacity of Ro-Ro ships to directly transit the fully loaded trucks or trailers (which are loaded with cargos like cars, etc.) from Turkey, Iraq and the Persian Gulf countries such as the UAE, Qatar and Oman to Kazakhstan, Russia and even Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.
