The topics debated and analysed during this reunion will concentrate on the rolling stock sector.
The passenger railway transport markets are continuously changing and expanding, the emphasis being put on areas concerning design, speed, comfort and more efficient intercity connections. Railway PRO Technology and Services Forum brings together regional and local passenger operators, infrastructure managers, global and regional constructors, integrators and engineering companies alongside public sector representatives and academia to discuss major developing projects concerning Romanian and CEE markets.
The key speakers invited – executives, regulators, policy makers and influencers – offer in-depth views on market development and trends, future growth opportunities, as well as engaging in productive discussions on the positioning of rail transport as a sustainable and competitive solution.
Over the past years, the liberalisation of the railway freight transport has facilitated the entry of new operators on the market, leading to an increase in competition and in the volume of goods transported.
The railway freight transport market is expected to continue to grow, but this requires higher efficiency and railway operators must find ways to reduce costs and deal with the increasing complexity of customer requirements, while at the same time achieving the targets of reducing emissions.
