Investments in rail expected to grow by 30 percent over next five years
Thousands of miles of rail and associated cars and stations in dire need of repair and replacement
Freight, passenger and light rail
Trimble’s rail solutions help rail managers, owners and rail operators quickly and accurately capture the data needed to maintain and construct rail infrastructure and to manage rail transport assets for civil construction. With expertise in both the rail and government sectors, we provide positioning solutions to help rail managers meet the demands of today and digitize to reduce costs and streamline processes in the future.
Advanced solutions for intelligent infrastructure and optimized asset management

Operate & Maintain
Current status and future state
While it has traditionally been difficult to procure, spend on combined passenger and freight rail is expected to jump to US $561.7 billion by 2026, according to a 2021 market study titled "Rail Transportation - Global Market Trajectory & Analytics". Investing in digital construction tools will set you apart as you apply grants.
Efficient railway management requires accurate, timely information on the location and status of fixed and mobile assets. Geospatial information systems gather, manage, and utilize spatial and related data on tracks, buildings, and other assets that are distributed over large areas. Using geospatial solutions, railway operators collect and analyze data to produce actionable information for use throughout the organization and across the lifespan of fixed and mobile assets.
By merging geospatial data with BIM platforms owners take asset data back into the design and construction process. Additionally by streamlining office to field workflows allows a project team to share design, survey and construction data sets within a single project model. These data sets then become available to design engineers and owners that need it for more automated and integrated management process and systems. By merging the data you can create tailored, task-specific tools for measurement and analysis increase efficiency and reduce costs in railway planning, operations, and maintenance.
