New international freight corridors around Europe and the deployment of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) have made cross-border operation a challenging training topic within the railway industry.
In order to train its drivers to the complexity of cross-border operation, LINEAS, one of the largest private rail freight operators in Europe, will rely on Transurb’s expertise to provide its training institutes with bespoke train driving simulators dedicated to both European Train Control System (ETCS) and national signalling systems training.
LINEAS, previously known as B-Logistics, offers premium rail products and total door-to-door logistics solutions. Transurb Simulation and LINEAS can be considered as two young and dynamic entities, advocating a similar set of values, putting customers first and sharing a passion for innovation. This was therefore only a question of time before a collaboration between our companies flourishes.
With this exciting project, Transurb confirms its status as a major reference in the world of ETCS Training Simulation. We would like to thank LINEAS for its choice and wish it a lot of success in its future endeavours. The simulators will be expected around the first quarter of 2019.
