Geographical Situation:

Chabahar is situated on the Makran Coast of the Sistan and Baluchestan province of Iran and is officially designated as a Free Trade and Industrial Zone by Iran's government. Due to its free trade zone status, the city has increased in significance in international trade.

Technical Features:

Chabahar lies eight hundred kilometers from Zaranj, the Afghan border city that provides access to the rest of the country.

Located on the south eastern tip of Iran’s troubled Sistan Baluchistan province, in the Gulf of Oman, Chabahar provides Iran access to the Indian Ocean. Its Shahid Kelantry port, with four jetties, has been operational since 1983 but it has capacity to take in only small ships.
