Railway is the safest, most efficient and most sustainable means of motorized transport. But living up to its potential requires taking radical steps to ensure the resilience and competitiveness of the system on which millions rely.
Due to the physical properties of moving steel over steel, the energy required to transport goods or people is lower than any other existing system. And with electrification, and renewables becoming prevalent, railway has a CO2 footprint even lower than walking (when fuelled by a non-vegan diet)!
Greenhouse gas intensity in gCO2 eq/person/km
Demand for railway is expected to double by 2050
Time of delays equivalent to 10,000 human lives p.a. globally
$170 B in OPEX $200 B in CAPEX $400 B in delays
Powered by machine learning, data insights can unlock sources of operational efficiency previously unimaginable. From helping to minimize downtimes of critical assets to intelligent traffic management – artificial intelligence changes the game.
