Activities by year

Indra ( is one of the leading global technology and consulting companies and the technological partner for core business operations of its customers world-wide. It is a world-leader in providing proprietary solutions in specific segments in Transport and Defence markets, and a leading firm in Digital Transformation Consultancy and Information Technologies in Spain and Latin America through its affiliate Minsait. Its business model is based on a comprehensive range of proprietary products, with a high-value focus and with a high innovation component. In the 2019 financial year, Indra achieved revenue of €3,204 billion, with more than 49,000 employees, a local presence in 46 countries and business operations in over 140 countries.

Indra responds to society´s present mobility needs with its Mova Solutions offer, which combines the new digital, integration, specialisation and innovation capabilities demanded by the market, with reliability, business knowledge, proprietary technology for Indra transport and the unique experience of its team of professionals. This combination of differentiating factors in the Indra Transport offer crafts an end-to-end portfolio of solutions focused on leading smart mobility, covering the entire life cycle of transport customer projects: ranging across engineering and consulting; collection, operation and control solutions; security; communications; traveller experience and even aftermarket services.

The comprehensive Indra Mova Solutions offer in the railway sector links various areas of the sector with all other transport media, entailing specific solutions and services for infrastructure administration and railway operators, logistics operators and manufacturers alike. Since 2019, the company has been certified by IRIS (International Railway Industry Standard), according to ISO 22163, which accredits the highest quality and safety of its railway products based on the most demanding industry standards.

Indra´s firm commitment to innovation places the company at the forefront of the global sector, particularly prominent in the scope of collection systems; operational and control systems for traffic and transport terminals; safety and infrastructure security solutions; systems for informing passengers and enhancing user experience; communications; and engineering and consulting services. Our technology has modernised railway infrastructures in many countries, including Spain, Turkey, Lithuania, Colombia, Argentina, Chile, China, Malaysia, the USA, the United Kingdom, Australia and Morocco, to which Ireland and Estonia have recently joined. This leadership has allowed Indra to become a benchmark technology provider within the Spanish consortium in Saudi Arabia's Mecca-Medina high-speed rail link project.



Innovations in 2019: Indra is part of the highest governing body of Shift2Rail, a European initiative for research and innovation in the sector of rail transport, which focuses its efforts on addressing the current challenges in the sector: growth in demand of traffic, congestion, security in the supply of energy, and climate change. Indra provides both its technological and digital capabilities as well as its railway experience and its extensive knowledge of many industries, thereby enabling it to generate synergies and transfer technology between different fields, and to facilitate management of the most integrated and intermodal mobility, contributing to the development of the necessary technology to complete the Single European Railway Area (SERA).

This important position in Shift2Rail consolidates Indra as one of the leading companies of the railway sector and acknowledges its commitment to innovation in this field.

Indra has a prominent role in the IP4 programme, with projects such as Connective, which help to position the company as a benchmark European enterprise in interoperability technologies applied to transport at a pan-European level. It is also involved in the IP2 programmes for the development of advanced traffic control and management systems, and in IP5, in the search for a more efficient, sustainable and competitive goods transportation.

Indra is also a Premium member and sits on the Executive Board of the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), a major defender of sustainable urban mobility and the only global network that brings together all public transport actors and all sustainable transport modes.

Indra is also positioned as a leader in new smart and reliable IoT technologies for the railway sector, which has been barely exploited until now due to the high demand for safety and with a high growth potential. Likewise, it is a pioneer in applications based on the generated information through big data to improve operations such as asset management and maintenance systems or energy optimisation systems.

It should be highlighted that the company is currently handling one of the world's largest collection contracts ever tendered to implement all ticket sale systems and access control in the new public transport system being developed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Indra will also equip the 500 km of the Mecca-Medina High-speed Railway with the Traffic Management System (TMS), Safety & Communications Systems, collection systems, sale and booking system, and other Indra-developed systems created by the company's firm commitment to R&D.
