Iran, Islamic Republic of - 3 Services and Supply

The quality and availability of services and supplies in Iran depend on various factors, such as the type of service, the level of regulation, the source of funding, and the geographic location.

In comparison to the neighbouring countries, transportation in Iran, especially road transportation is quite cost-efficient. Iran's government in order to strengthen people’s livelihood keeps the fuel price down and as a result movement of goods in the country is quite cost-efficient.

Economic sanctions imposed on the country lead to limited access to international markets and technology, thereby challenging the supply chain in various sectors.

Due to the access of Iran to the open oceans, the Iranian international road transporters are quite active in the country, transiting the goods from southern ports to the neighbouring countries. As Iran is a member of the CMR and TIR convention, international road transporters also are active in moving goods to the neighbouring countries.

The government is responsible for establishing policies and planning for highways and road transport, as well as constructing, maintaining, and managing ports and commercial maritime affairs.
