This research aims at identifying and ranking the effective factors in constructing dry ports in
Iran. Initially, by reviewing the literature and inputs from professionals, 20 important criteria
impacting constructing dry ports were identified,categorized under three groups of
infrastructure, hardware and software and data were collected through questionnaire.
Questionnaire’s validity was determined by university professors and professionals and
reliability of the questionnaire was evaluated by Cronbach’s Alpha, which showed an
acceptable level of 0.789. Collected data were analyzed by appropriate tatistical tests. The
results showed that the main dimensions of software, hardware and infrastructure were the
most effective factors in constructing dry ports in Iran respectively. Moreover, of the 20
identified criteria, “the availability of the equipment and facilities for loading and unloading”,
“providing the customs and clearance services”, “access to the national and international main
routes (hinterland)” were the most important criteria and have had the most effects on
constructing dry ports. Criteria such as “access to the empty container for commercial
transactions”, “proximity to the production markets and “access to the borders” showed the
least effect on constructing dry ports in Iran.
