Rail Logistics Europe (RLE), a key segment of the SNCF Group, is set for a major reorganization as it heads into a significant transition phase in 2024.

The Rail Logistics Europe restructuring is a response to the European Commission's investigation into state aid for Fret SNCF and will result in the formation of two new operational companies by January 1, 2025. The new structure will include a mutualized transport enterprise and a freight locomotive maintenance firm.

Key executive changes at RLE include:

  • Frédéric Delorme remains as President of Rail Logistics Europe and Fret SNCF.
  • Charles Puech d’Alissac, previously President of VIIA and Naviland Cargo, is appointed as General Director of Fret SNCF and is set to become President of the mutualized transport enterprise in 2025.
  • Jérôme Leborgne, formerly General Director of Fret SNCF, will now serve as Secretary-General of RLE.
  • Nicolas Gindt, previously in charge of Strategy and Innovation at RLE, takes over as President of the Captrain holding.
  • Nicholas Giraud, the outgoing President of Captrain, assumes the role of Director of Strategy and Development.
  • Tristan Rouzès, former Director of Performance, Transformation, and Digital, is appointed as the lead for the upcoming freight locomotive maintenance company, set to be established in 2025.

These appointments are part of a strategic move to enhance RLE's role in European freight transport decarbonization, leveraging the varied experiences of its leadership team to accelerate development and integration within the organization.
