Establishment of Dry Ports and Inland Container Depots (I.C.D.) in the Mainland

On the basis of the studies carried out in the first half of the year 2007, the establishment of inland container depots has been among the strategic and core strategies of Tidewater Middle East. Considering that and by taking into account that Tehran is the region with the most container traffic in the country, the first ICD equipped with container equipment was established in the first half of 2007 at Aprin railways loading station. The station is located in south of Tehran between Persian Gulf (Tehran – Ghom) Freeway and Tehran – Saveh Freeway and has more than 700 hectares area which belongs to I. R. Iran Railways. This point is going to become one of the most important terminals of the country as a result of investments done by the governmental and private sector. Tidewater Middle East has commenced its activities with 20 billion Rials investment and installation some facilities and equipment including reach stock, side lift, different lift trucks, cranes, balances, container washing facilities, etc. The area, which is used by Tidewater Middle East in the first phase, is 7 hectares and could be increased up to 40 hectares. Based on the experiences the company acquired in this project, we decided to establish minimum two new ICD's in other northern and western ports; we hope to be able to commence the operations of these two ICD's after development and equipping of Aprin ICD. On the other hand, Iran and Turkey have entered into a protocol on development of cargo transit by rail and road transportation and establishment of common logistic parks in dry ports of the both countries. The implementation of the protocol will play an important role in connection of north and south ports and also facilitating the goods and container transportation operations and will result in growth on Iran – Turkey transit.
