Thank you for visiting us at InnoTrans 2022!

Crowded stations and crowded trains – driven by the steadily rising flow of goods and the constantly growing demand for mobility.

Given today’s clearly defined climate targets, there is an increasingly pressing need for sustainable transportation of people and freight by rail. Rail is and remains the most eco-friendly mode of travel and transportation. But rail is currently in the throes of a profound transformation.

Our solution landscapes, composed of Knorr-Bremse’s latest innovative developments were presented over more than 1,000 square meters (nearly 11,000 square feet) of exhibition space. Solutions for safe, reliable, sustainable mobility worldwide. Solutions for rail operators and rail vehicle manufacturers. And every single solution designed to be customizable.

Tomorrow's mobility on the Knorr-Bremse booth!

Landscapes aren’t generally characterized by abrupt changes – they flow and merge into one another. The same is true of the landscape of innovations paving the way for tomorrow’s mobility. The various solutions are interdependent; they complement, supplement and complete one another.

As an enabler of the mobility revolution, Knorr-Bremse has created solution landscapes rich in highly innovative products, systems and services. All these innovations are making the transportation of people and freight by rail more reliable and more connected, safer and cleaner, more comfortable and more efficient.

The future of mobility was the leitmotif of our landscapes, and of our booth as a whole. You found out how to optimize your Ecological Footprint, boost your Traffic Flow, and make your Train Operations & Maintenance processes and workflows even more efficient. Put together your own Smart Solutions using our interconnected subsystems, functions, services and applications to create a solutions package tailored to your specific needs.

Get into the flow! Thank you for visiting Knorr-Bremse at InnoTrans 2022.
