High-speed rail development in Italy

The medium/long distance “market” production increase planned
by 2011 is more than 40% due to the HS Train service.

The HS supply will be developed on a range of 10 (in rush hour)/60
minute frequencies.

   Interoperability: increase interoperability on lines and HS corridors;

FS Group made a technological leap implying a cultural and
organizational revolution in terms of performances.
The real challenge is to keep on this approach increasingly optimizing
processes in a cost-benefit analysis to maintain the leadership as
international benchmark.

Relationship with suppliers

   Train intensively        • Cascade through “train the trainers” approach
