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.


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.
