Since the establishment of this company, the transportation unit has been playing a major role in delivery, shipment, and supply of the factory feed from reputable sources, refineries, petrochemical factories in Iran by using tankers and trucks with world-class standards and test certificates issued by competent authorities.
Using specialized and experienced human resources in the transportation industry as well as its massive road transportation fleet, this unit is able to load and carry more than 100,000 tons of various petroleum and petrochemical derivatives per month as a result of concluding various contracts with reputable transportation contractors.
Since the company’s development in 2017, the transportation unit has been loading and moving petroleum products from bases in Arak and Kermanshah by rail in order to reduce the transportation costs and move a larger volume of materials in a suitable lead time.
By using rail fleet and tankers, the company’s monthly capacity of oil shipments reached 20 thousand tons and was set to increase to 50 thousand tons.
In line with our transportation capacity development, Aftab Oil Refining has established and commissioned wagon loading facilities in Kermanshah with all the necessary pieces of equipment such as: railway tracks, equipped loading pumps, and generators to supply electricity.
In Bandar Abbas factories, a major duty of this unit is to load and transport the drums of export bitumen to piers. This requires well-experienced personnel and proper equipment including edged trucks, scales, and forklifts. By using these pieces of equipment, up to 1000 tons are loaded daily and delivered to the Shahid Rajaei Pier. After the consignments are loaded into the containers, the legal export process is performed.
