Since Imam Khomeini Port Complex is the main hub of basic commodities
in the region, it is very important that ships spend the least amount of time
at the berths for loading and unloading operations.
The director of Imam Khomeini Port Free Economic Zone
stated: currently it takes an average of 8 to 10 days for an average ship to be
unloaded, but in line with the approved master plan, the creation and operation
of several mechanized grain terminals have been put on the agenda. according to
the plan, the mechanization of Terminal 4 has more than 60% physical progress with
an annual capacity of 4 million tons. With the construction of these terminals,
the unloading time of a 60,000-ton ship will be at most 5 days, which will play
a significant role in the cost of goods.
Derris considered the upgrade of the country's ports,
especially Imam Khomeini Port, as one of the serious approaches of the Ports and
Maritime Organization and said: the establishment of a grain logistics center
is one of the vital plans in Imam Port Complex.
