Trends in European Rail Freight and selected railway strategies

  • Freight

The Rail Freight Portal aims to create a positive perception of rail freight, building on the remarkable progress made by the railway companies in response to the logistics needs of their customers.

The portal is open to the public and was launched in autumn 2009. The portal provides attractive and up-to-date information on rail freight and statistics, and is accessible to the general public, journalists and potential customers.

The portal has been developed in cooperation with the members of UIC, with a view to creating Europe’s leading rail freight portal, and can be described as a potential communications platform for railway undertakings to disseminate essential information to the public.
