TEHRAN (Iran News) – The Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Line Group (IRISL), pointing to the launch of regular transport line for exports from Iran to Venezuela every two months, announced that the third ship carrying Iranian goods to Venezuela will start its journey in May.
The group noted that with having road and rail transport facilities, the group is able to ship exports directly from the factories in any part of the country to the determined destination.
Regular transport of exports to Venezuela was one of the demands of Iranian companies and traders and it has been under consideration of the IRISL for some months and accordingly, the regular shipping line from Iran to Venezuela has been launched regularly for every two months basis.
The mentioned line with competitive fare and regular journey schedule has been carried out two times so far and the third shipment to Venezuela will be carried out in May.
The group noted despite announcement and promoting this service, only two auto making companies have welcomed it and other companies and exporters have not welcomed it so far and since the cost of dispatch of ocean liner ships on Iran-Venezuela route is very high, IRISL calls on all exporters and economic activists who are keen to export their products to Venezuela to take advantage of these services and facilities.
In late November, IRISL Group announced the launch of a direct shipping line to Venezuela.
The announcement said that the way the businesspeople from both sides welcome this shipping line would determine whether it would continue to operate or no.
