Article 19 (2) of Regulation (EU) 913/2010 concerning a European rail network for competitive freight requires the Management Boards of the RFCs to monitor the performance of rail freight services on their respective freight corridors and publish the results once a year.

To provide recommendations for using a set of KPIs commonly applicable to all RFCs, a joint RNE-RFC project team was tasked with developing a guideline that can be downloaded here. Also, an RNE-RFC KPI Expert Group has been established, aiming to coordinate the use of these KPIs and to evaluate their use on a yearly basis.

Publication of RFC KPIs

The below table demonstrates the figures of the commonly applicable KPIs for 2016 per RFC, as approved by the RFC Management Boards.

These KPIs reflect the performance of each individual RFC in terms of capacity management, operations and market development. Therefore, when comparing the figures of various RFCs, the specificities of each one have to be considered. Each RFC may apply any additional KPIs, which are published in their annual reports on their websites and/or in the Customer Information Platform (CIP), where applicable.

Please refer to the annual reports of the individual RFCs for comprehensive information concerning the figures and their analysis. In addition, you can find a more detailed description of each commonly applicable KPI in the RNE ‘Guidelines for Key Performance Indicators of Rail Freight Corridors’.
