Besides the practical side of these projects, ETF creates real partnerships with its customers to meet their user and merchandise mobility challenges.

Its capacity to win major contracts, both from a technical and financial point of view, relies on ETF’s desire to advance together in multi-profession mode with Eurovia its shareholder, VINCI Group, as well as other companies from the rail sector, each with their own complementary skills.
