The strong internationalisation of the railway industry is reaching its limits in terms of expertise - A significant number of employees will retire in the coming years and there are already mismatches between available and required skills created by digital and high-tech technologies (Source: ““Competitiveness of the EU Rail Supply Industry” UNIFE). Today, a lack of skilled personnel in the global track construction industry is a hurdle to the growth and profitability of companies operating in the track construction sector. The Global Rail Trust group of companies wants to contribute to solving these bottlenecks and is now offering a new, versatile range of services to provide and advance expertise in railway track.
To support companies in successfully meeting these challenges, there will be several companies under the umbrella brand "Global Rail Trust": Global Rail Media, Global Rail Consulting and Global Rail Academy. The aim is to support companies in the field of track construction in complementary business areas, to act globally and to be able to take advantage of the resulting business opportunities.
