Mafex coordinated the participation of the Spanish railway industry in the XIX edition of the Exporail Congress, which took place from 11th to 13th February 2020 in Cancun.
During this convention, which is a reference for the sector in Mexico, 500 specialists from 14 countries took part in more than 40 technical sessions where the trends, actions and challenges, both in the freight and passenger rail sector, were analysed.
With a full agenda with key issues such as the precise railway operation as well as the relevant aspects of freight railway, the presentation that stood out was that on the investment plans by Lorenzo Reyes Retana, Managing Director of Planning and Projects of Grupo México Transportes (GMXT); Lázaro Rodríguez, Managing Director of Ferrocarril Línea Coahuila Durango; Corrado Muciño, Chief Operating Officer of Ferrovalle and Roberto Romandía, Managing Director of BajaRailroad.
On the other hand, there were also several panels in which the participant Spanish companies Amurrio, GMV, Ineco and Patentes Talgo together with Mafex as moderator, presented a panel focused on the international success of the Spanish railway industry. Thanks to the participation of the four partner companies, also representatives of four different subsectors: engineering, infrastructure, systems and rolling stock, it was possible to raise awareness about the extensive experience of our sector in the design, structuring and execution of large railway projects from their earliest planning phases to commissioning and operation.
This edition served to strengthen commercial and business ties in the field of transport, as well as to raise awareness about the progress of new projects such as the construction of the Maya Train, the Transistmico or the Mexico-Queretaro in addition to the possibilities offered by the freight railway sector.
