Association information

Introduction HRI

HRI, Holland Rail Industry, is an association of producers, engineers and consultants in the rail sector. It represents the economic and technical interests of the industry. HRI is a trade association of the FME.

Introduction rail sector

The rail industry is undergoing considerable change. In addition to the general trends to which the sector is exposed such as new entrants to the EU's traditional rail-oriented countries, has to do with the internationalization of the market, unbundling of infrastructure and transport, changing competitive and new visions of the procurement. The sector is faced with a growing need for modern rail links and new concepts for collaboration between client and industry that may take shape in Public Private Partnership.The market for the rail industry is highly subject to political decisions. HRI therefore sees it as its task to influence this decision and HRI is an active member of UNIFE, the European Organisation for the rail industry.


The service members cover a range of topics. This includes legislation on the environment, safety, product authorization, export support and standardization.

  • Increase investment in the rail sector.
