A new private sector shipping line between Iran’s southern Jask Port and Oman’s Al Suwaiq Port has come on stream and will be used to transport wholesale Iranian commodities to the Persian Guld country using containers, says Iran-Oman Chamber of Commerce.

The new line brings to four the number of active direct commercial shipping lines between Iran and its southern neighbour Oman, on the other side of the strategic Strait of Hurmuz that serves as an entrance to the Persian Gulf. Previously, the two countries’ private sectors launched three shipping lines that have connected Iran’s southern ports of Bandar Abaas and Khorramshar to Oman’s Sohar Port while Bahonar Port has been linked to the neighbourign country’s Al Suwaiq Port.
