The Milak Border Terminal, established in 2005 on a 12.5-hectare site, aims to facilitate passenger and transit cargo transport in southeastern Iran and promote regional, political, economic, social, and cultural development. The terminal's marketplace facilitates the export of various goods from Iran to Afghanistan, including food items, plastic products, machine-made carpets, cement, clothing, and hygiene products.

Additionally, the Silk Bridge was constructed adjacent to the Milak marketplace, with plans underway to launch a second bridge. The Silk Bridge serves as the primary link between Zaranj, Afghanistan, and the Milak border in Iran, with half of the bridge's territory belonging to Iran and the other half to Afghanistan.
