Delachaux SA Goes West According to BAC Report21 Sep 2011 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON - Railroad is Delachaux main business sector, generating 60% of all company’s revenues. Delachaux can choose to expand this segment due to high prospective of railroad industry development. Demand for freight transportation is expected to double by 2035. If present market trend remains, railroads will show an 88% increase in tonnage in the next 25 years. For example, North American Railroad Passenger Company Amtrak, with ridership of more than 28 million passengers in 2010, sees those numbers rise to 60 million by 2050 (a 114% increase). A highly profitable North American region (comprising 23% of Delachaux sales) is going to become even more profitable.
