MANAGING DIRECTOR/ CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD
We tell the story of the people who, day after day, make GTS RAIL a leading company in Europe. Our mission is to provide high quality traction services in the world of goods.
The company’s sole administrator and its CEO, Alessio Muciaccia, was born in 1976 in Bari and graduated in Economics and Commerce. He joined the company in 1999.
As a married father of four, he created GTS RAIL in 2008 at the dawn of liberalization, believing that an open market would create limitless opportunities for growth. In 2008, rail was synonymous with slowness, inefficiency, rigidity.
Our mission is to overturn outdated paradigms with “facts.” Since then, there have been records set, new relationships made, and significant investments (over 150 million euros).
Through eradicating the perception that railways are an old-style business and bringing a radically new managerial style to the sector, GTS RAIL’s strength grows and asserts itself.
Our goal is to become the best practice in the European railway panorama. The road is marked: safety, sustainability, originality… and have fun!
