Rail industry’s export strength begins at home

Rail industry’s export strength begins at home…

Author(s): Ben Möbius, Managing Director, German Rail Industry Association (VDB)

“Railways are the greatest productive act there has ever been, not just in the 19th century but throughout history”. This insight from German sociologist and national economist Werner Sombart (1863-1941) has rarely been more relevant than it is today. The current digitalisation of rail transport represents not only a fundamental innovative leap, but also promises the most climate-friendly, customer-friendly and economical means of mobility there has ever been.

New investment highs in existing Swedish rail infrastructure

New investment highs in existing Swedish rail infrastructure

Author(s): Björn Westerberg, CEO of ASTOC – the Association of Swedish Train Operating Companies

The increase of rail transport in Sweden has been positive for a long time on an aggregate level and the development has been the strongest in passenger traffic. Since the early-1990s train travel has doubled whereas the corresponding rate of increase in car travellers has been 10-15%. Railway infrastructure developments and investments in new traffic systems have been decisive factors in this growth. Maintenance and re investments, however, have not kept pace with traffic trends and the shortcomings in the rail system are becoming increasingly apparent. Björn Westerberg, CEO of ASTOC – the Association of Swedish Train Operating Companies – details current work and future plans for Sweden’s rail investments.

Transport and greenhouse gas emissions: challenges for 2030

Author(s): Libor Lochman, Executive Director & Ethem Pekin, Senior Environmental Economist, CER

As the world’s population continues to rise at an unprecedented rate, so too does industry and the resultant need to move both people and goods.
