Iran Freight Transport Report Q4 2014 - New Report Available

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Oct 20 2014

Our outlook for the Iranian freight transport sector in 2014 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 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.
