The port city of Anzali, located on the Caspian Sea, is Iran's most important gateway to connections with its northern neighbors, especially Russia. The geographical location of this Zone has made Anzali port, as a northern anchor of the north-south corridor, to play a significant role in the transfer and transit of goods between East Asian countries and Europe.

On the other hand, the proximity of Anzali port to Rasht city, as the capital of Gilan province, along with the balanced climate, four-season climate and natural and geographical beauties of this region, has made Anzali among the important tourist destinations of Iran. In order to take advantage of these capacities, Anzali Free Trade-Industrial Zone was established in 2005, with an initial area of ​​approximately 3200 hectares. The boundaries of ​​this Zone were improved in 2014 and its area increased to about 8609 hectares. The main focus of this Zone is on the development of the transportation industry, trade and commercial services, the expansion of the tourism industry, as well as the processing and agricultural industries as well as the clean industries.

Anzali Free Trade-Industrial Zone includes two separate geographical areas. The eastern part, which is located near Anzali Wetland, which mostly includes port and customs facilities, industrial town and natural resource lands, and the western part, which includes agricultural lands (mostly cucurbits and gardens) and tourist and recreational places and facilities.

Anzali Free Trade-Industrial Zone includes 2.68 hectares of port area equipped with 10 mechanized wharves, with a total capacity of 50,000 tons. Also, soon, with the establishment of the Caspian port as a third-generation port, with 22 berths and a capacity of 11 million tons, this Zone will be able to become a logistics hub in the region, holding warehousing and distribution of goods, as well as development and expansion of marine industry.
