RMD at Railway Forum North

Railway Metrics and Dynamics is participating as an exhibitor at this year’s Railway Forum North (Järnvägsforum norr), a recurring event being held this time in Sundsvall. The main theme revolves around this falls upcoming government proposal for how the state’s infrastructure policy will look during the period 2026-2037.

Critical issues being discussed

Interest in infrastructure policy issues is high, and this year’s forum was quickly fully booked. Additionally, the railway infrastructure in northern Sweden is in great need of refurbishment, both in terms of vehicle traffic and new requirements for military mobility, but above all regarding freight traffic – especially the Iron Ore Line (Malmbanan).

The Iron Ore Line (Malmbanan) is Sweden’s most important artery. Half of all railway freight in Sweden and Norway is transported on its rails. It connects Swedish mines with the ports of Luleå and Narvik, thus linking Sweden with the global market. There is broad consensus that the government must prioritize rapid refurbishment and digitalization.

– Railway Metrics and Dynamics will participate in all forums where the industry collectively discusses the future of Swedish infrastructure. In northern Sweden, an unprecedented industrial boom is underway. At the same time, the digitalization must get underway to make the railway in the north reliable.

 

Jan Lindqvist, CEO of Railway Metrics and Dynamics.

 

Broad topics but clear focus

The topics over the two days of the event vary from sustainability, the Swedish Transport Administration’s “Platform North”, security issues and NATO – to industrial growth and new planned facilities for green steel.

The railway is at the center – and it still needs to be digitized and modernized.

– We, at Railway Metrics and Dynamics, are at the forefront of railway digitalization, Lindqvist asserts. Our presence here is not just about networking; it’s about charting the path forward for Sweden’s prosperity. As exhibitors, we aim to highlight the opportunities available and provide actionable insights, he concludes.

Railway Forum North is visited by, among others:

  • Andreas Carlson, Minister for Infrastructure and Housing
  • Annika Wäppling Korzinek, Head of the European Commission Representation in Sweden
  • Henrik Dahlin, CEO Green Cargo
  • Robert Maiorana, Director-General Swedish Transport Administration
  • Ulf Larsson, CEO and President SCA
  • Ulrika Heie, Chairman of the Transport Committee
  • Maria Stockhaus, Member of the Transport Committee

We look forward to exciting discussions and meetings with leading decision-makers and business leaders during these days at Södra Berget in Sundsvall.

Our presence here is not just about networking; it’s about charting the path forward for Sweden’s prosperity. As exhibitors, we aim to highlight the opportunities available and provide actionable insights.
