Significant amounts of aluminium are used throughout the rail market in modern railway vehicles for both passenger transport and freight. Its properties allow for increased speeds and lower energy consumption, giving improved performance on existing infrastructures.
Train and railway advancements have seen an increase in usage for raw materials and finished goods alike. When aluminium is used to transport materials, the return on investment is much greater than other materials. This is due to the increased load capacities which can be transported, increasing efficiency and profitability.
In the public transport sector, aluminium is used to meet the rising demand for trams and light rail in city centres worldwide. Giving increased energy efficiency and performance, aluminium is the perfect material to form the basis of rail transport systems. With sustainability and environmental factors being a bigger and bigger concern, aluminium is the perfect answer.
