the global spread of Coronavirus has had a direct impact on the world trade
volume, as well as the Caspian Sea littoral states, Mohammad Ali Asl Saeedipoor
said: Due to the epidemic conditions of this virus in the country, Amirabad
Port has played a key role in providing basic commodities for the country in
the first quarter of this year and by inloading 628,544 tons of this type of
goods, has a 52% share among northern ports of Iran.
He pointed out that in this spring, 204 vessels carrying
844,869 tons of goods were unloaded and loaded in Amirabad port. 182,802 tons
of goods, both oil and non-oil, has been exported through Amirabad port to
other countries in the first quarter of this year.
The location of Amirabad port with 15 berths on the north-south
international corrodor is the most important link that provides a strategic
opportunity to increase the transit of goods from the Caspian littoral states
to Central Asian countries, Saeedipoor emphasized.
