Intelligence Through Data

Global Rail Group’s core competences are data-based consulting and decision management for asset management in railway infrastructure. This enables realistic KPIs and priorities to be set together with DRS Alliance customers and recommendations to be implemented cost-effectively. For example, as a consulting partner, Global Rail Group conducted a feasibility study in 2022 in collaboration with the DRS Alliance on a possible increase in the line speed of trains from 130 km/h to 200 km/h on the Delhi-Agra route in India.

Global Rail Group also specializes in solutions for increasing the capacity of railway infrastructure. By optimizing utilization, costs can be saved and resources conserved, which means, among other things, more sustainable operations.


These data-driven approaches are crucial to effectively addressing the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the railway industry and shaping a sustainable, efficient future of transport.
