This study aims to identify an appropriate model for developing the transit capacity, known as an instrument that countries use in relation to their geographical locations to diversify their income sources. In international aspects, developing transit capacity can also provide a country with other advantages in foreign affairs. Moreover, it is necessary to develop transit by Iran because of reducing economic vulnerability and increasing deterrence against hostile activities of Iran’s enemies. Therefore, transit opportunities and bottlenecks were identified in addition to reviewing previous studies and interviewing the experts. Considering the semi-structured and in-depth interviews given to 13 informed transit experts, this is a qualitative study in which the grounded theory was employed. Finally, the proper transit capacity development model was proposed by extracting causal, main category, intervening, and contextual conditions and outcomes.
