Iran, Kazakhstan to establish pilot sea-rail shipment path
(MENAFN) Kazakhstan has gotten into a deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran for utilizing the nation’s rail network and the southern Shahid Rajaee Port for shipping commodities to the Central Asian and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) areas.
Based on Hossein Abbasnejad, the head general of the Ports and Maritime Department of Hormozgan Province, to this end, the two nations will establish a pilot sea-rail transport venture which is going to be starting at the opening of the next year.
Talking about the latest trip by Deputy Premier as well as Minister of Trade and Integration of the Republic of Kazakhstan Zhumangarin Serik to Shahid Rajaee Port, Abbasnejad pointed out that the two nations have reached a deal to mutually collaborate in establishing the venture.
The official pointed that because of the situations established after the Russia-Ukraine conflict, one of the vital problems around the transit of commodities is utilizing the International North-South Transit Corridor (INSTC) which has earned Iran a special statue in terms of shipments in and out of the nation in the eyes of the Central Asian and CIS nations.
