NS and ADSE sign Innovation Agreement on Rail Transport and Mobility solutions

NS Group NV and ADSE Consulting and Engineering BV have signed an innovation agreement on rail transport and mobility solutions which paves the way towards a sustainable future.

NS is the Dutch national railway and by far the largest transit operator in the country. NS expects the mobility market as a whole to grow and become more dynamic, with travelers expecting tailor-made solutions for their journey. This requires innovation!

NS is therefore looking for partners to convert trends and developments into new products and services to make traveling more pleasant, sustainable and affordable. NS has selected ADSE as partner of choice, because of its proven services in the field of new train acquisition, new technology introduction, authorization and safe integration and maintenance optimization.

NS Trefpunt

The Innovation Agreement was signed in the so-called “NS Trefpunt”, the training and conference center of the Dutch Railways. No more apt place could have been chosen. Here, innovation is born. Employees can experience which facilities you will encounter as a traveler and which train types there are. New interior and exterior of the trains of the future are exhibited and sustainable traveling by train is showcased.
