RAILDATA celebrates its 20th anniversary

  • Freight

RAILDATA is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
It is not so often that such an event can be celebrated for an IT group.
RAILDATA was created in 1995 with a small group of railways willing to have a tool to develop, run and maintain IT services to support their business.
20 years later, RAILDATA has 16 members, delivers high added-value IT services.
12 millions messages are processed each month in RAILDATA databases.
RAILDATA is now a key actor for the sector and plays an important role in TAF TSI deployment in close cooperation with the European Commission and ERA.
RAILDATA has initiated a strategy based on strong partnership with other organisations such CER, HITRAIL, RNE, CIT, UIP, etc.
RAILDATA is now ready to face the challenges of the coming years.

Message from Jean-Pierre Loubinoux

Dear Colleagues
Dear Friends

Today you are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of RAILDATA.
First of all, I would like to apologise for not being among you today. I had to remain in Paris due to others obligations.
I would have appreciated sharing these moments with you.
You and I are proud of RAILDATA.

It is not so often that we can celebrate such an anniversary, especially for an IT group.
RAILDATA is a real success story. It is therefore thanks to you and to your personal involvement. RAILDATA has been able to meet the current needs of its members and now it represents a real high added-value set of services which supports the Freight RU business.

Through its reactivity and its capacity to anticipate the market needs, RAILDATA has been able to bring the most accurate IT answers to the requirements of the industry.
RAILDATA is a key actor for UIC.

RAILDATA is part of UIC and UIC is proud to have RAILDATA as part of the family.
I personally want to express my total confidence in RAILDATA and its community and I want you to be sure that I have done so until now and that I will do my very best to promote and support RAILDATA so that this success story will continue.
I wish you all a very good anniversary and a bright future.

Long live RAILDATA
