The rail freight world is so multi-faceted that we never stop learning and developing, and we often learn best from our peers. As an international freight train planner, my daily work is based on analytical capacity, creativity and a high degree of professional know-how and exchange with many different colleagues and partners. By sharing our knowledge and working closely together, we can overcome boundaries and create high quality transport solutions within a complex system.
