EFE

EFE Chile

La Empresa de los Ferrocarriles del Estado, fue creada el 04 de enero de 1884, siendo la empresa estatal más antigua de Chile, y ha representado desde sus inicios un aporte fundamental en la colonización e incorporación de parte importante del territorio nacional a la actividad productiva, siendo un hito importante que la red ferroviaria desde Iquique a Puerto Montt fuera completada en el año 1913. Fruto de la separación de los negocios de la gestión de tráfico y el servicio de transporte de pasajeros y carga, se transfirieron todos los servicios de pasajeros a empresas filiales (sociedades anónimas), dejando en la matriz (EFE) todos los aspectos vinculados al desarrollo y gestión de la infraestructura ferroviaria. Este nuevo modelo de negocios permite una búsqueda constante en la modernización de los procesos de EFE, tanto en su marco institucional, como en la entrega de sus servicios y en la gestión de la empresa, lo que permite maximizar el uso comercial y operativo de la infraestructura y tecnología ferroviaria, fomentando el desarrollo de servicios de transporte competitivos que cuenten con una rentabilidad positiva.
