BeNEX acts as an investor in both, rolling stock as well as train operating companies (“TOCs”) which operate rail franchises across Germany. BeNEX was initially a JV between INPP and Hamburger Hochbahn AG, a subsidiary of the Federal State and City of Hamburg, but has been wholly-owned by INPP since July 2019.

Concession term


BeNEX owns in excess of 100 passenger trains and leases these to its TOCs typically for a period matching the underlying operating concession term. Individual concessions are typically granted for 10-15 years with a 2-3 year preparation period to cover vehicle procurement. The public sector client is the respective public authority of the individual concession e.g. the Federal States of Berlin, Bavaria, Hesse, Lower-Saxony, Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Brandenburg, and others. The TOCs in which BeNEX is invested provide an aggregate of approximately 43 million train kilometres of transport per annum which is already contracted to increase to approximately 49 million train kilometres by end of 2024.
