News

VR FleetCare started measuring customer satisfaction systematically in the last quarter of 2019. Compared to the starting level survey that was completed at the turn of the year, customer satisfaction towards the company improved in all areas. The survey was implemented in April as the coronavirus situation was at its most severe, and the restrictions were at their strictest in Finland and the neighbouring areas in Europe. However, this did not really seem to impact VR FleetCare’s operations.
The development of the train fleet’s maintenance programme and the management of the lifecycle are some of the key content for the new contract period. During the contract period, the co-operation will be utilized in which the service branch of Stadler, the Swiss manufacturer of the FLIRT trains used by HSL, provides material and expert services to VR FleetCare.
Switches play a key role in ensuring smooth railway operations. A switch is used at a railway junction to steer trains from one track to another. Last year, switch failures caused over 5,000 disruptions to traffic in Finland. To enhance the monitoring of the condition of switches, VR FleetCare, a company offering railway fleet management, and the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency (FTIA), which is in charge of Finnish railways and their development, have launched a joint pilot project focused on collecting and analysing data to obtain real-time information about the condition of switches.
