Hitachi Rail

Connecting the Future of Mobility

Hitachi Rail is a fully integrated, global provider of transport solutions across rolling stock, signalling services and turnkey.

We continue to deliver the most current Shinkansen for Japan’s railways, and have successfully exported our technology and expertise to multiple rolling stock projects across the globe — from high speed, tram and metro, to driverless technologies for passengers and freight.

Recent acquisitions in Italy and beyond have cemented our digital growth, which has diversified revenue and added capability in signalling and turnkey in particular.

We are ambitious and continue to seek to expand into new key geographies and to deliver new solutions. Drawing on the wider Hitachi group’s market-leading technology capabilities and R&D, we strive for industry leading innovations able to deliver value for customers and help build sustainable railway systems which benefit wider society.


Innovative sustainable mobility is at the heart of our business and we believe that we have an obligation to inspire and build a better and more sustainable future for cities and customers across the globe.

We are committed to becoming a climate change innovator. Creating net zero, sustainable solutions to decarbonise transport around the world. Where railways are not already electrified, we are designing and building new battery and hybrid trains and trams to cut diesel emissions. Elsewhere we are delivering whole new sustainable railways to help protect the environment now and for a net-zero future.


We believe the future of transport will be driven by digitising and fully-integrating the entire mobility system to improve the whole passenger journey. By digitally connecting everything — from trains, signalling and infrastructure, to operations, maintenance and passenger-interfaces — the complete system can be planned, managed and optimised. Couple this with the power of AI and Hitachi’s world-class engineering, and we can deliver a step-change in service. Innovation in rail is key in enabling us to grow our offering for our customers through enhancing existing products, systems and solutions, whilst also harnessing global market trends.

As a business, we are investing in innovative rail so that we can provide solutions for the megatrends effecting the mobility sector, including sustainability, autonomous vehicles, digitalisation, urbanisation and customer experience — all with a focus to enhance customer satisfaction and increase passenger experience.
