Exports Via Railroad Up 55 Percent

Iran's exports via railroads increased 55% during the 10 months of the current Iranian year (March 20, 2016-January 19, 2017) compared with the similar period of the previous year, according to director of Transit Commission at the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways, Hosssein Ashouri.  He did not mention the volume of cargos exported during the period, type of commodities or export destinations. Iran has rail connections with Turkmenistan, Pakistan, Turkey and Iraq. 
“Due to the prevailing recession in the region, we have not increased transit tariffs in the past few years. In fact, we have offered discounts, as the prices of commodities have been on the decline,” Ashouri told Mehr News Agency. 
Iran offers up to 35% discounts to commodities such as cotton, sulfur, fertilizers and Mazut shipped from Central Asia and destined for Pakistan, Turkey and the southern Port of Bandar Abbas where the commodities are transported by sea.
