RAIL CONSULTING SERVICES

United Rail and DB Engineering & Consulting, the engineering and consulting arm of Deutsche Bahn, the German national railroad operator, are inaugurating a local US operation. The goal of this collaboration is to identify US projects on which DB International can provide scope out of Jacksonville, Florida or other future new US locations.  The local operation will be supported by DB E&C with United Rail personnel supporting their efforts.

This is one example of the consulting services United Rail provides for foreign companies interested to set up an operation in the US.  Whether they look to set up an independent operation or are looking for a well-established partner, United Rail is able to facilitate appropriate connections to clients nationwide.  The same services can be provided to US companies interested in establishing operations in Europe or other parts of the world.  With our multicultural background, United Rail understands how the needs of a business vary in different parts of the world. When it comes to Management Consulting or Project Management, United Rail looks back on its years of experience in the rail industry and is able to support its clients in many different ways, from improving internal processes, business organization, customer approach, project management and much more.
