Scope of the project

Commercial due diligence of a cargo railroad in order to enter the European market.



Since GWI already impressively demonstrated how to operate in other geographical markets than their home market, they decided to enter the European rail cargo market. In order to prepare the market entry TransCare conducted a commercial due diligence of a railroad. This railroad was one of the prime targets to enter the European market. TransCare evaluated all commercial contracts as well as the existing rolling stock with their rental and lease agreements. Furthermore TransCare developed a rough integration and development strategy of the company on the European market.
