The Rail industry is undergoing a global renaissance. How can rail operators position themselves to benefit from the changes that are occurring?
Macro trends, such as increasing urban expansion, population growth, traffic congestion, pollution, and carbon emissions, have driven transportation planners and their stakeholders to reconsider the value proposition of rail. Global commitment to reduced emissions by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2050 creates significant motivation for a modal shift from all other forms of transport to rail.
With the lowest emissions of any transport mode and a fundamental ability to address volumes and distances, rail has great potential to be a significant strategic mobility solution in achieving reduced or net-zero emissions. Further, rail represents one of the safest forms of travel, second only to air travel, providing added incentives for modal shifts towards the rail.
At AusRAIL Plus, the largest rail industry event in Asia Pacific South hosted by the Australasian Railway Association, Dassault Systèmes will bring you in-depth insights into best-in-class technology enablers and solutions that will empower rail planners and operators to optimize rail networks to reduce costs, improve service quality, reliability and capacity planning.
The one thing that has remained constant since the original inception of rail-based transportation is the value proposition for rail: The greater the volume of people or goods to be moved and the longer the distance to be traveled, the more attractive rail-based transport becomes.
