With our long-standing transport expertise and our IT know-how, we are constantly developing new, intelligent mobility solutions that increase availability of infrastructure, optimize throughput and improve passenger experience. It’s in how we electrify, automate and digitalize infrastructure that we’re setting the benchmark for tomorrow’s mobility – today”.

Learning from and with sector representatives, namely suppliers, rather than merely engaging with stakeholders, involves a deeper commitment than dialogue or reporting. It involves a commitment to embrace critical stakeholders as a strategic asset in shaping and informing the direction of the sector.
Mr. João Carvalho reiterated the commitment to working closely with stakeholders, this commitment is underpinned by listening carefully and responding appropriately to complaints raised by stakeholders and by continue to promote meetings with sector organizations, in order to facilitate knowledge exchange and focus on relevant issues across the industry.
