The volume of transited goods increased by 17.1 percent compared with the same period in the previous year, IRNA quoted him as saying.
In December 2012, Afandizadeh said Iran is a major transit connection for goods traded between Iraq and the United Arab Emirates and between Turkey and Turkmenistan.
Fuel, oil products, petrochemicals, construction materials, cotton, home appliances, vehicles, foodstuffs, and fertilizers are the most commonly transited consignments, he noted.
Afandizadeh also said that more than 100 countries are currently transiting their goods via Iran.
