The sector’s views on Rail Freight Corridors Regulation 913/2010

In light of the European Green Deal and the Commission’s goal to reach climate-neutrality by 2050, European rail freight plays an important role. The Rail Freight Corridors are the backbone of the sustainable movement of goods across Europe, and are also fundamental for a connected European economy.

After ten years of implementation the sector welcomes the opportunity to share its experiences of the Rail Freight Corridors Regulation 913/2010 and take part in the revision process.

In this joint position paper, CER and EIM would like to propose possible solutions and recommendations for the European Commission’s evaluation and revision of the Regulation. These solutions and recommendations aim at creating unified quality services for customers and boosting rail freight competitiveness.
