For Rolling Stock Leasing Companies

The Challenges Of Modern Fleet Management

Making sure that your fleet is safe, reliable, cost effective, and an attractive proposition for train operators is a constant challenge.


Challenges such as how to:

  • drive competitiveness to keep you and your clients profitable
  • meet train operator demands and keep your fleets an attractive proposition
  • deal with the threats and opportunities posed by innovation
  • improve train reliability and availability
  • enhance your fleet’s residual value
  • meet legislative requirements
  • handle obsolescence

We recognise that these essential technical, logistical and management performance challenges can draw heavily on limited internal resources and demand new efficiencies and innovation from the supply chain.

Case Studies...


The Door Diagnostics Unit (DDU) enables
remote monitoring of train doors through
the use of inductively coupled telemetry.
It is a low cost solution that delivers “health indicators” on the doors that allow effective
and targeted interventions to be made.
The new Unipart Rail Code Conversion Unit
has been proven in service to improve
reliability, reduce power consumption,
reduce mass and reduce potential
failure modes.

Eurostar required a solution for the supply
of materials that would reduce time, procurement activities and storage optimisation. Unipart Rail’s kitting system significantly reduced the
time taken to complete the overhaul operation.
