Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL) has reportedly began its first pilot transfer of goods from Russia to India through the International North-South Transit Corridor (INSTC).

Daryoush Jamali, the director of the Iranian-Russian Port of Salianka, told IRNA news agency on Saturday that the cargo includes two 40-foot containers of wood laminate sheets which has departed Russia’s Saint Petersburg for Astrakhan Port.     

The cargo will then pass through the Caspian Sea to arrive in Iran’s Anzali Port, he said.

Jamali added that the cargo will then be transferred by trucks to Bandar Abbas Port in southern Iran where it will be loaded on container-carrying ships to continue its way to Nhava Sheva Port of India.

It is expected that the whole journey of the cargo from Russia to India will take 25 days.

Given the agreements made for transfer of large volumes of goods from Russia and Belarus to India via Astrakhan Port, the dispatch of this cargo is considered as the beginning of a boom in foreign transit through the International North-South Transit Corridor.
