The project is capable of carrying heavy packages with a maximum weight of 500 tons.

According to the report, a package weighing 330 tons (length 31 m, width and height of about 4.5 meters), was unloaded from Baltic Harmony vessel at the port of Bandar Abbas last week to mark the heaviest and longest transported cargo since the project had begun.
