Transform Rail Operations Through Efficient Planning & Optimization

DELMIA Quintiq Rail Service, Fleet, and Crew Planning offer comprehensive solutions for Rail Freight Operators, Rail Passenger Operators, and Infrastructure Managers of any size to create a reliable service portfolio, fleet, and crew required to operate those services.

Rail Freight Operations helps Freight Operators address bulk commodities and intermodal markets. They control costs by maximizing train utilization and operational flexibility and managing conflicting demands from infrastructure managers, terminal operators, and clients.

In Rail Passenger Service, the solution enables Passenger Service Operators to improve the quality of service delivery and minimize operational costs while ensuring safety and passenger and employee satisfaction. 

Rail Infrastructure Management empowers Infrastructure Managers to maximize network utilization by considering all assets, project requirements, rules, and constraints. As a result, they make intelligent, financially sound decisions for operations, maintenance, and growth.
