Abstract:

BMI View: The freight industry in Pakistan is forecast to grow moderately over the medium term as trade growth is increasing and investment is being put into freight infrastructure. Weaker demand for commodities and lower oil prices have impacted the economy in Pakistan over the last year and also subdued freight transport growth. ...As such, a healthy manufacturing sector is crucial to the overall state of the economy and its freight volumes. We forecast that Pakistan will see comfortable macroeconomic growth over our short- and medium-term forecast period, and highlight that the country s efforts to diversify trade out of its current core trade partners could pay dividends to the freight sector in particular in the long term. We expect growth for all freight modes in Pakistan over the medium term, with the strongest forecast for air freight. ...In terms of future investment in Pakistan s freight transport network, which could benefit the country s freight transport operations, BMI highlights that according to our Infrastructure Key Projects Database, USD-.--bn is set to be invested in the medium term. This is fairly evenly distributed between roads and bridges, airports, rail development and airports, suggesting that there should be developments in all of Pakistan s freight transport sector in future.

Pakistan s ports are reported to be among the most expensive in the world, making rail freight a better and cheaper option for the transport of goods.
