The rail industry is experiencing a renaissance, propelled by increasing population growth and density in urban areas, the liberalization of market conditions for rail operators globally, and the rising popularity of rail as a more efficient and environmentally friendly mode of transportation.
However, to ensure the industry remains on track for future growth, companies in the various rail segments – passenger rail services, rail freight operations, and rail infrastructure management – must be able to accommodate this surge in demand, which is outpacing capacity and straining existing, out-of-date rail systems and aging infrastructure.
To overcome this capacity challenge, meet the growing, global demand for rail transport, and cope with the immense complexity inherent in daily rail operations, rail companies must be able to achieve operational efficiency and agility.
