Abstract Table of Contents Request Details Related
Our outlook for the Iranian freight transport sector in 2015 is that the country will begin to see a return to growth in volumes, in part due to base effects, and in part due to the more moderate stance adopted by new President Rouhani, and the loosening of sanctions against the country. Although the ports and shipping industry continue to face significant challenges, rail freight continues to see strong investment. That said, it will take time for the Iranian economy to recover, and consumption levels will remain depressed for some time.
