AERRL in few key figures
We represent more than a half of the whole rolling stock leasing fleet in operation in European Union, Switzerland and Norway.
about our association
The purpose of AERRL is to promote interoperable, sustainable, efficient and safe passenger and cargo rolling stock transport for the European railways. AERRL is also supporting an increased open access to railway infrastructure.
We aim to address all technical, operational, legal and scientific issues related to locomotives and train leasing operations for lessors operating in the European Union, like broad access to rolling stock, the European freight corridor development, realistic and affordable upgrades of rolling stock to ETCS, promotion of a more competitive European maintenance, spare parts market and support to further decarbonization and digitalization of rail transportation.
The organization is open to all companies or persons likely to contribute to the pursuit of its objectives.
Members of AERRL & ALLRAIL with new PLEDGE to finance & operate newly built or 2nd hand rolling stock
A meeting between lessors in AERRL and independent railway operators in ALLRAIL leads to a new pledge to actively contribute to help launch new commercial rail offers for passengers through maximum availability of passenger rolling stock.
AERRL & partners have launched the first phase of a study to identify and promote technologies to cut the climate impact of existing diesel-powered rail fleets in the near future. Although rail is already by far the most sustainable mode of land transport, this initiative aims to help rail transport on non-electrified lines transition to low-carbon technologies that provide even greener passenger and freight transport.
