The European Rail Network for Competitive Freight

 

logo_2008_towards_rail_network.jpg

The Regulation concerning a European Rail Network for Competitive Freight (Regulation EU 913/2010) entered into force on 9 November 2010. The Regulation requests Member State to establish international market-oriented Rail Freight Corridors to meet three challenges :

  • strengthening co-operation between Infrastructure Managers on key aspects such as allocation of path, deployment of interoperable systems and infrastructure development;
  • striking the right balance between freight and passenger traffic along the Rail Freight Corridors, giving adequate capacity and priority for freight in line with market needs and ensuring that common punctuality targets for freight trains are met;
  • promoting intermodality between rail and other transport modes by integrating terminals into the corridor management and development.
