The Eastern side of the country includes part of Chabahar and the network of land roads network which start from Port of Chabahar in Sistan Baluchestan province, and going the towns such as Nikshahr, Iranshahr, Khash, Zahedan, Nahbandan, Sarbisheh,, Birjand, Ghayen, Gonabad, Torbat Heydariyeh,, and the holy city of Mashhad ends to the town of Sarakls from one side, and to border points of Lotfabad, Bajgiran, Parseh soo in two provinces of Khorasan Razavi and North Khorasan from the other.

The exits of this point leading to the border regions joint with Afghanistan , include : Mialk , Dougharoon , Mill and Yazdan. Some economists believe that economic leaps of developed countries are due to optimized policy- making in transportation –related affairs. Transportation is so significant that economic specialists and experts as well as those researching in the field consider that as the a country’s main body of development. Iran , our beloved country , has lots of active potentials in the field of transportation .

The Islamic Republic of Iran is in fact a communicating bridge between Asia-Europe and the Middle Asia with International Waters , and since it has a special geographical situation , it can play a major role in transporting goods by land , air and sea . This distinguished situation Iran enjoys in the region has been further highlighted due to recent geopolitics changes in the region during the last few years , so that good conditions have now been provided for the transit goods and more dynamism of local markets as well .
