The strategic position of the port of Lengeh in the Persian Gulf is that it is the closest port to the UAE and many goods are exported through it, but with the outbreak of the Corona virus, the situation became such that the destination countries refused to accept agricultural and food goods in bulk. Most started to packing and refrigerating. In addition to traditional vessels, efforts are being made to look at modernization. Some goods, such as agricultural and sea products, which cannot be transported by traditional vessels, are refrigerated. From the end of 1398 and the beginning of 1399, when the Corona pandemic spread, the field of refrigerated containers became active, and due to the 24-hour activity of our colleagues, now the port of Lengeh has become the export hub of refrigerated containers. In the last year, about 60 TEU refrigerated containers were exported, part of which was sent to the UAE and the other part to other countries bordering the Persian Gulf.
