The railway sector is complex: legal and technical frameworks are constantly changing, and the rail market contains several players who have interests that are, at times, sharply divergent. Enormous challenges are presented by the restricted financial situation in the public sector, the significant need for investment in infrastructure and vehicles, and not least the all-encompassing process of social change.

Public stakeholders need to ensure that regional passenger rail services are built on a solid financial basis, and therefore secured for the long-term. As part of this, tendering procedures must be configured in such a way that there is healthy competition between bidders, meaning attractive prices can be achieved. On the other hand, bids must also be of a high quality, creating an appealing proposal for passengers. We provide support to our customers during the whole tendering process and beyond. We create tender documentation and transport contracts. We develop innovative concepts for infrastructure, vehicle procurement and vehicle financing. Many of our projects concern the profitability of transportation, which we illustrate with revenue and demand predictions and comprehensive estimates. We also offer operational support for the duration of the contract, for example in the form of vehicle management.

We develop future strategies for our customers, helping them to optimise their organisational structures and guarantee their long-term competitiveness. In addition, we offer policy advice addressing all questions within the rail sector.

We also help regions elsewhere in Europe to implement the transition into a competitive environment as smoothly as possible. Our customers benefit from the extensive experience we have garnered in Germany.

We hope to make a contribution to securing the sustainability of rail as a mode of transport in the coming years and decades. We keep abreast of the growing demands of users, the rapid pace of technical progress, and all other relevant departments in the mobility sector and related areas.
