Through the use of integrated resource planning and management systems, Abellio was able to mobilise for a new operating concession in only 10 months.
With the timetable change in December 2015, Abellio began operating the Saale-Thüringen-Südharz network under a contract that runs to December 2030. Spanning 575 route-km across five Länder and requiring the operation of 9·2 million train-km, it was the largest regional railway concession to be awarded since the reform of the German rail market in 1994.
