"I provide the technical and financial lead for my fleet of locomotives – it’s an extremely varied working life."
A rolling stock fleet manager is responsible for all operational aspects relating to the management of our rolling stock: orders, traceability, stop-work orders and restrictions, derogations, etc. This task is vital to the delivery of Akiem’s quality standards, ensuring that all our equipment provides the best possible availability and reliability.
Collecting and recording information from contractors (statement of work, reports, etc.), updating intervention schedules, compiling task lists, entering data in the maintenance management tool, operational management and verification of parameters (customer data, vehicle engine data, etc.) — all carried out in full autonomy!
