An increasing population, growing demand for imported goods (due to a decline in manufacturing) and congestion are making greater demands on passenger services and rail freight. Rail owners and operators need to act now to increase the availability and capacity of passenger and rail services. But with limited budgets, acquiring new rolling stock isn’t always the best option.
Rolling Stock managers are faced with the challenging task of making the most of existing assets and maximising availability while balancing reliability and cost efficiency. The question is, how does one maximise availability and extend lifespan while maintaining reliability and integrity. These are some of the issues that will be addressed at the Rolling Stock Management 2015 conference.
