Iran (IMNA) – "Concerning the reduction of transport costs, cabotage of essential goods through sea will bring many benefits for the country," Mohammad Rastad said. Maritime cabotage includes transporting goods between points through sea or river borders; It originally applied to shipping along coastal routes, port to port, but now applies to aviation,railway, and road transport as well. Cabotage rights are the right of a company from one country to trade in another country.

"A significant reduction in transportation costs, decreasing the fuel consumption, maintaining the environmental issues, reducing the road traffics, and increasing the use of port capacities are among the advantages of this method," he emphasized. So, when we refer to maritime cabotage, we actually mean the way items are transported through riverborders.
