There are more than 400 approved public railway companies in Germany.
So where do they all get enough short-term, route-savvy personnel for their trains? Which drivers are familiar both with new and old locomotive series? Who offers comprehensive wagon inspections? Or is there anybody who can handle all personnel aspects of transport services?
The answer to all these questions is: MEV.
We are your expert partner.
Whether in planning and taking on new modes of transport or modifying existing transport services, whether in passenger rail transport or long-distance haulage, short or long term, whether as a railbound service package or "only" recruitment of railway operation personnel, whether nationwide or international, our expertise and performance make MEV an excellent partner.
Are you a small railway company with small overheads but large service demands? Would you like help in planning or route application? Need to monitor your trains round the clock but don't have the resources for a 24/7 control centre?
We'll get you on track. Step by step.
Experienced transport technicians will support you in the planning of new transport services and the application of your routes. And when the trains start rolling our central control centre will take care of monitoring them: 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and often an extra day on top of that.
Welcome to Germany!
As a foreign railway company you would like to run services to and through Germany; locomotives and wagons are available and approved but you don't have a railway company licence in Germany.
We are approved to carry out rail haulage services and have a safety certificate from the Federal Railway Office. We will plan and organise your transports, apply your routes with our licence, carry out wagon inspections on crossing the border and provide drivers, while our control centre takes care of train running control We will support you in acquiring your own German licence and safety certificate. And if it gets hazardous, we also have a dangerous goods officer!
Small problem, big consequences! Mobile maintenance saves time and money.
Faulty brake block, missing warning label: a wagon can quickly be labelled and taken out of service. Then it just stands there costing money. MEV's mobile wagon technician service carries out minor repairs and maintenance work on-site, minimising delays and removing the need to take the wagon to a workshop.
