Increasing emphasis has been placed upon public transportation as a measurement to resolve global environmental issues derived from rapid population growth and urbanization in developing countries. Large numbers of rail projects are planned and implemented in countries around the world to solve such problems.
Railway industry is based on so-called experience engineering. Railway system comprises of range of technical/engineering fields that affect one another, and the understanding of the total system behavior could not be acquired in a day. Therefore, the role of the railway consultants with operation and maintenance experience, in addition to design and construction, has become more and more important.
Under such circumstances, Japan International Consultants for Transportation (JIC) was established, by inheriting the expertise of the Japan Railway Technical Service (JARTS), with the funding of 10 of Japan’s major railway companies.
Based on an experience and knowledge in world railway projects and personnel with variety of experience in the rail industry, JIC is capable of providing consulting services from transportation planning, design, construction supervision, operation and maintenance in a range of transportation system including high speed rail, urban rail and new transportation systems.
JIC will continue to further develop transportation infrastructure in countries around the world as Japan’s leading overseas rail consulting firm.
