"Ebrahim Idani, director general of Hormozgan Ports and Maritime Department, was quoted by Iranian media as saying on Tuesday that the fifth-generation container ship, Ever Legion, has started its journey from China’s Shanghai port and will call at various ports in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and the United Arab Emirates’ Jebel Ali Free Zone before berthing at Shahid Rajaei port, which is Iran's biggest container port. The official noted that the Taiwanese ship is 335 meters long with a draft of 14.5 meters and is scheduled to arrive at Shahid Rajaei port on August 5. Idani noted that the Evergreen shipping company called at Shahid Rajaei port since 2000, but its activities in Iran were stopped due to sanctions imposed on the country by the European Union and the United States over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program... 'Seven container ships operated by the Taiwanese shipping line are expected to call at Shahid Rajaei port to onload and offload 5,000-6,000 TEU of containers per week, thus resuming the company’s activities in Iran,' Idani added."
