Growing down the line

There is increasing demand for rail transport of passenger and goods in Europe and beyond. This means increasing business opportunities for rail operators. To take advantage of this, operators need to consider their capacity constraints as well as the stronger international competition now evident in the European market. They will also need to establish international strategy and services in order to become serious players in more globalised markets.

Our expertise

We deliver unique methodologies for establishing international and intermodal networks. Our services include post-merger integration of foreign companies that have been acquired and also the setting up of new multimodal supply chains in emerging markets.

We can also deliver a framework that makes it possible to optimise rail operation planning, production and quality control. We have developed tools to examine transportation plans and compare them with service quality, costs and sustainability.

In addition, we offer a proven methodology that supports production by improving maintenance and material management processes. What’s more, we can even measure train punctuality and customer satisfaction.

We currently focus on:

Design & preparation of rail transport plans

In order to increase their operational excellence and to synchronise all stakeholders (main lines vs. commuters, public authorities and so on) and resources (slots, rolling stock, drivers, stations, maintenance and other services) involved in rail production, train operators need to define an accurate forecast of production plans at a very early stage. The issue is to be able to plan and order the right resources far ahead of the production itself.

Punctuality measurement for production

Both passengers and public authorities have increasing requests and demands on the quality and regularity of the rail transportation. Passengers expect a good quality of service. Public authorities also need to better follow and financially reward the production contracts and commitments. Punctuality is also a concern for train operators who need to produce a zero default service in order to beat the competition (road, air transportation). Therefore, they need reliable measurement tools in order to monitor their activity and to negotiate with public authorities.

Set up of cross border rail cargo operations

In order to increase their operational excellence and to synchronise all stakeholders (main lines vs. commuters, public authorities and so on) and resources (slots, rolling stock, drivers, stations, maintenance and other services) involved in rail production, train operators need to define an accurate forecast of production plans at a very early stage. The issue is to be able to plan and order the right resources far ahead of the production itself.

Supply chain transformation for rolling stock

Customer expectations of service quality are rising. Customers expect reliable railway schedules and passenger vehicles in good technical condition. However technical failures and extremely weather conditions affect the availability of rolling stock. Maintenance and spare part management are therefore becoming more critical within in the overall production process.
