Hit Rail supports the European Railway’s International and partner‑to‑partner IP‑based messaging

Efficient and secure data connections are vital to support railway business processes. To facilitate connectivity and interoperability between the railways, Hit Rail has been providing IP-based solutions to the European railways community for over 25 years.

Over 30 railway companies trust Hit Rail to conduct national and international business transactions, such as international ticket reservations, train pre-advices, infrastructure path requests, wagon search and many other applications.

Now HEROS provides a set of interoperability services on top of the Hermes VPN with the objective of facilitating business among railways partners and the adoption of the EU-mandated TSIs.
