Maritime transport has long been one of the most common types of export and import goods in the world. Looking back, for the first time 2100 BC, the first vessels were built in Phenicia on the present-day North African continent. But officially the phenomena we are dealing with today are container ships carrying containers, founded by Malcolm McLean in early 1955.
With a little research we can see that this type of freight is a long-term deal for shipping companies and freight forwarders around the world. If you want to lower the finished market price you have to reduce your current costs, one of the costs that is always important to an importer or exporter is shipping. Now, however, maritime transport is at a significantly lower cost than aviation and land transport in the leading field. By the way, the audience is also much larger than the other two types of carriers in the world.
But it cannot be ignored that the shipment time is much longer than the other two types. If we are to comprehensively investigate this, everyone in the customer world use the service. But we must not forget where we live. In our country, Iran is the gateway to the import and export of shipping to the south of the country and traders import and export from the ports of the south. But where do we import more?

Among, the UAE countries and South Korea are second and third. If we look closely, we find that we have maritime relations with all three countries, and we can easily understand that most of our imports are maritime because we do not have land relations with these three countries!
