The track to transport decarbonisation: Imperative to boost efficiency of terminal operations through innovation
A significant element in India's transport decarbonisation strategy involves improving the Railways' market share to at least 45% in total freight transport by 2030. It is currently estimated to be at around 26%. Restoring Indian Railways as a national carrier with a dominant market share is a desirable step as it remains the most environment-friendly mode of land transport. From the perspective of decarbonising India's transport sector, focussed initiatives to energise the rail freight business and achieving greater modal share in freight movement is necessary.
