Industry View
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 potential loosening of sanctions against the country. Although the ports and
shipping continue to face significant challenges, rail freight continues to see strong investment.
