French term or phrase: transporteur

Can anyone help me understand the term "«transporteur » SNCF" in the following context?

"Le système de réservation et de distribution est maintenant complété d’un système d’information intégré dédié à la production ferroviaire du «transporteur » SNCF, couvrant la totalité de ses besoins, depuis les études de dessertes les plus en amont, jusqu’à la gestion opérationnelle des trafics voyageurs."

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!
