One of the compelling ways to enhance freight sustainability is enhancing the role of rail in freight transport. In this regard, digitalization of rail operations and processes can further enhance operational efficiency and ability of rail to integrate seamlessly with other modes of transport thereby supporting measures to increase freight transported by rail.

On the request from the Railways of Islamic Republic of Iran (RAI), ESCAP conducted a background study on state of rail digitalization and a drafted a strategy to accelerate digital transformation for the RAI. 

A national consultation workshop is being organized to present the findings of the draft study to the officials of RAI and other relevant stakeholders. 

The Workshop’s objectives include enhancing capacity as well as understanding of officials of RAI and other stakeholders on challenges in digital transformation of RAI and ways to address them. 

The workshop also aims to exchange views and solicit suggestions on the draft strategy for its finalization.

The activity is organized under the regular programme of technical cooperation of ESCAP for year at the request of RAI.
