The freight segment from a level of around a billion tones is moving to the next billion with record procurement of new freight wagons as well as the development of special commodity wagons. Correspondingly, the modernization and 100% electrification is envisaged over its vast network within next 3 years with advanced track, signaling, infrastructural development etc. This is a significant opportunity for the Rail industry in India and abroad to network, show-case, interact and build international partnerships and to establish B to B and B to C relationships for a better future.
