Development of small ports; A Priority for PMO in 2019-2020

“Precise planning for small ports has been carried out and boosting the cabotage of goods between main ports and small ports is on the agenda.” said the Managing Director of Ports and Maritime Organization.


Mohammad Rastad, pointing to the fact that a part of the country's regional interactions, including export and import, is carried out through small ports, stated that meanwhile, a significant portion of job creation on the coast and the economic prosperity of these areas are realized through small ports.

He added: "The Ports and Maritime Organization will do its best by providing a detailed plan for the traditional and commercial fleet so they could utilize the best possible facilities for their operations. “

Emphasizing that the major part of the traditional and lightweight fleet on the southern coasts of the country are engaged in commercial activities and shipping, the deputy minister of Roads and Urban planning stated that this opportunity needs to be provided in order to strengthen the cabotage of goods between main ports and small ports.

Rastad Also elaborated that using the capacity of small ports, transfer of goods on the coast and in the form of transshipment should also be considered.

He concluded: The Ports and Maritime Organization has considered the development of small ports as a priority this year and paying more attention to small ports will enable these ports to operate well in the maritime transport sector.
