83,000 wagons, 290 members, 1 association
VPI is the industry association for private keepers of wagons as well as workshops in Germany. We ensure a good technical, legal and operational framework in railway traffic. Together with our member companies, we work for a strong rail sector. Since 1921.
We offer sustainable and economical solutions to promote the growth of the railway sector – within the various committees and working groups of the sector and as a strong voice to advise policymakers in Berlin. Representing the interests of the industry is one pillar of our association; the other is our broad range of services. VPI is known throughout Europe for its maintenance guide for wagons, the VPI-EMG.
