Record Set in Iran's Railroad Freight Transportation

Close to 47 million tons of cargo have been transported via railroad in Iran since the beginning of the current Iranian year (March 21, 2017), which indicates a 17.5% increase compared with the similar period of last year, the CEO of Islamic Republic of Iran Railways announced.
The volume has already gone beyond the record high of 40.3 million tons of cargo transported via rail in Iran last year (March 2016-17).
“Rail transit from Iran has reached around 1.6 million tons so far this year, registering a 45.5% rise compared with the corresponding period of last year,” Saeed Mohammadzadeh was also quoted as saying.

IRIR and the Construction and Development of Transportation Infrastructure Company, both affiliated with the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, have laid tracks for 1,300 kilometers of railroads so far in the current year (ending March 20), which is a record high over the past 90 years.
