It has been in permanent relationship with operators, government authorities and legislators, BNDES (the Brazilian Development Bank), universities and several segments of society.


METAS DA ABIFER

  • Implementar, em consonância com as concessionárias, programas de inovações tecnológicas para o aprimoramento contínuo dos equipamentos e componentes ferroviários;
  • Atuar junto ao BNDES e outros bancos de fomento, para obter as condições mais favoráveis de financiamento para a aquisição de equipamentos ferroviários, bem como para a sua manutenção e modernização;
  • Promover a intermodalidade, sem perder de vista a necessidade do equilíbrio da matriz brasileira de transporte de cargas, ainda bastante distorcida e desfavorável ao nosso setor;
  • Incentivar a expansão da malha ferroviária, hoje extremamente aquém dos padrões mundiais, promovendo a otimização dos acessos ferroviários aos portos;
  • Apoiar os projetos de implantação do Trem de Alta Velocidade e dos Trens Regionais, com a máxima participação da indústria ferroviária brasileira na sua execução;
  • Colaborar com a EPL (Empresa de Planejamento e Logística), VALEC e DNIT;
  • Defender um fluxo contínuo de investimentos, a médio e longo prazos, para a implantação de uma infraestrutura de transporte de massa que viabilize o desenvolvimento sustentável das principais cidades brasileiras.

Brazilian Railroad Industry

The Brazilian railroad industry is the largest in South America. Besides genuine national companies, leading global companies in the sector have operations in Brazil, with modern manufacturing facilities, using local specialized engineering and workforce.

The competitiveness and quality of the national industry are certified by its long track-record of exports including freight cars, passenger cars, locomotives, components and track materials, competing with renowned international players from five continents.
Technological innovation is one of the major strategic goals in the Brazilian railroad industry. The sector keeps abreast of the world’s technological evolution, ensuring a remarkable presence in the global market. It has a highly skilled technical staff, with resources to develop and absorb all kinds of technology.
By manufacturing all types of freight cars, for transportation of diversified goods such as ore, grain, liquid, steel, and manufactured products in general, through containers, the Brazilian railroad industry develops and supplies specific wagons for whatever application, working in partnership with concessionaires and their users.
AC locomotives of high power classes are produced in Brazil. Cars for subways, suburban trains, LRV, monorails, and signaling systems are also manufactured in Brazil and supplied to national operators to meet their expansion and revitalization projects.
The national industry offers for the cargo and passenger operators services for revitalization, and modernization of railway equipment and their components.
