At Train Alliance, we acquire strategically located land and develop it to be railway-ready; designs and constructs facilities for train and rail infrastructure maintenance and logistics. The company was built up successively, and today we own just over 2 million sqm of land in strategic locations, of which around 40% is development land and around 60% is land that has been industrially zoned. A number of the facilities that the company manages are classified as being of national interest, while others are considered high priority by local decision-makers and large customers.
Unique land areas, specialist know-how in the railway industry, strong property expertise and special permits all contribute to Train Alliance’s strong position in its market niche. Railway-ready land and facilities are sold off or leased in long-term contracts.
Freight transport by rail is predicted to grow, driven by economic growth and climate considerations. Currently, there is a shortage of rail facilities, and the EU is pushing for changes in railway industry regulations and standards to strengthen the competitiveness of the railway industry, a move that has the support of Swedish authorities and politicians. Many companies are actively working to reduce their transport emissions, where a shift from road to rail can have a major impact.
Train Alliance sees unique value creation opportunities in the 2020s. By developing a network of modern railway facilities in the right locations, the company intends to meet expressed demand that runs into the 2070s. Financially, the goal is to generate a strong cash flow, providing shareholders with a strong dividend yield.
