Towards new Rail freight quality and concepts in the European Network in respect to market Demand

Objective

The Commission's White Paper clearly demonstrated why the international rail freight services have lost in competitiveness and market share compared to road. The White Paper, too, designed a general framework of actions which, if applied by the relevant parties, would strengthen this sector and contribute to advance an innovative network of competitive integrated Pan-European services.

Against this background, the TREND proposal sees its responsibilities in providing two major results as an input to the EC rail transport policy, thus responding to the Call 2A requirements: First of all, TREND gathers all necessary information to assess the general progress in the establishment of an European Railway Area. As a core product this Part A will provide an improved "Integration Index" which is composed of a set of sub-indices covering amongst others the issues of liberalization, free access, interoperability etc.
