Global ambitions for Renfe

The Spanish railway company Renfe is working with ITB Berlin for the first time this year. Overseen by the Ministry of Transport of Spain, Renfe is dedicated to the commercialisation of passenger and freight rail services.

Renfe has just announced an agreement with Texas Central for a €5.5bn high-speed train project in the US state. Renfe will collaborate with the design build consortium (recently announced the addition of Salini Impregilio as lead) and the technology partners to ensure a holistic, efficient approach for the Texas Central Railroad.

Renfe is one of the world’s most significant railways operators, running 5,000 trains daily on 12,000 km of track. As an operator, Renfe’s work is focused on providing train passengers with an excellent experience – from how they buy their tickets to safely carrying them down the tracks.

Meanwhile, in Spain, Renfe has announced a new season of operation for its “Wine Train” and “Canal Train”, departing from Madrid. The two thematic trains are the result of the collaboration between Renfe and the Provincial Council of Valladolid, in order to favour the touristic promotion of the province of Valladolid.

Renfe also boasts that it leads the sector ranking of “Most Responsible Companies in passenger transport”, for the second consecutive year, according to the Merco Responsibility and Corporate Governance report 2019.
