The Swedish Transport Administration

An asset management lowers costs and reduces downtime, creating a super-efficient transportation network

Published on 25 Jul 2013

We have seen such an enormous improvement in our maintenance and asset control that we have challenged other comparable bodies internationally in a ‘world championship’ for transportation maintenance.

Deployment country


The Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) is the national agency responsible for all modes of transportation in Sweden, including roads, rail, air and sea transport.

Business need
The administration needed to centralize the maintenance and repair of its assets, as well as the oversight of its contractors, to improve service and save money.

Coordinated, preventive maintenance is the key to cost-effectively managing assets that span different locations and functions in a multimodal transportation system. This national agency now handles the maintenance and repair of, and new investment in, its transportation assets with a single, coordinated asset management system.

Reduces the number of unplanned maintenance-related outages and improves the availability of the public transportation infrastructure
