Following the mantra “Hungry For Cargo,” IR has consistently worked to make it easier to do business and to supply services at affordable costs, which has led to an increase in both traditional and non-traditional commodities streams using railways. Railways was able to achieve this historic feat because to the business development units’ customer-centric strategy and hard effort, which was supported by agile policies.
