Rail transport : an attractive and eco-responsible sector

1 train = 50 fewer trucks on the roads

Every day on the French national rail network, some 15 000 trains enable people to get around and companies to transport their goods (e.g. cereals, consumer goods, etc.) in complete safety and in an environment-friendly way.
And because for us, performance is also measured in ecological terms, we are proud to contribute to the construction of a greener world by providing our clients with transport solutions that are not only more efficient but also cleaner, providing a realistic alternative to road transport.
This credo motivates all of our decisions and provides the justification for our corporate mission statement:

“For the sake of our planet, each & every day, urging you to choose rail”.

Ouvrier Captrain

From theory lessons to driving simulator sessions, I work with several groups of trainee drivers during their learning process. Another part of my job involves reworking and enhancing the initial program.
Why did I become a Trainer? A mentor at heart, I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience, an aspect of my work that I first discovered when trainees were assigned to travel with me back when I was a driver.
