Designing the “freight vehicle – track system” for higher delivered tonnage with improved availability at reduced cost
Started in June 2011, the SUSTRAIL project is a four-year collaborative R&D project co-funded by the European Commission within FP7, with the overall objective to support the freight railway in regaining a primary position in freight transport.
