With more than 30 years of experience and a dedicated team of IT and transport planning specialists, HaCon has established itself as a leading player for planning, scheduling and information solutions. The timetable information system HAFAS and the train planning system TPS are used all over Europe.
Furthermore, HaCon consults and assists its customers with projects in rail freight transport and combined transport in particular. An interdisciplinary consulting team of transport engineers, geographers, lawyers and IT specialists puts great emphasis on an approach that is both integrated and results-oriented. HaCon has many years of project management experience for the European Commission (e.g. CREAM, TIGER, SPIDER PLUS, ViWaS) and other project sponsors.
The service portfolio includes the requisition and negotiation of subsidies, the completion of financial and administrative formalities and the overall coordination of all parties involved such as railway companies, shipping agents, institutions and associations.
To HaCon, a regular exchange and close partnerships with other companies and institutions of the logistics industry are just as important as active memberships. Amongst others, HaCon is engaged in the German Transport Forum (DVF), the Association of the European Rail Industry (UNIFE), the Research Association for Intermodal Transport (SGKV) as well as the NEWOPERA research association through which HaCon is directly involved in the work of ERRAC, the European Rail Research Advisory Council. HaCon is also founding member of the European Shift²Rail initiative and thus significantly involved in the conception of the corresponding innovation programs.
In recent years we have been involved in numerous research projects and introduced our long term experience in passenger information into national and international projects.
