Iran & Oman launch new container shipping line

A new container shipping line, which officially started operations on Saturday, is going to be used to transit container cargoes, mainly fruits, and vegetables, between the Iran and Oman. The countries Oman had signed a maritime cooperation agreement in December 2019 for boosting maritime transportation between the two countries.

Based on the agreement, Iranian traders and businessmen would be able to interact constructively with their Omani counterparts, and regular shipping lines were to be established between the two countries, while the two sides also pledged to provide facilities for using each other’s ports.

Iran and Oman have already launched four direct shipping lines between the two countries' ports.

The first shipping route between the two countries was put into operation in March 2015 between Iran’s Bandar Abbas and Oman’s Sohar. Later in December 2016, the two neighbors inaugurated direct shipping routes from two Omani ports to the Iranian port of Shahid Bahonar.
