Rail Freight Corridors (RFCs)The Regulation (EU) No 913/2010 concerning a European Rail Network for Competitive Freight (Rail Freight Regulation) entered into force on 9 November 2010. This Regulation requests Member States to establish international market-oriented Rail Freight Corridors (RFCs) to meet three main challenges:
- strengthening co-operation between Infrastructure Managers on key aspects such as allocation of paths, deployment of interoperable systems and infrastructure development;
- finding the right balance between freight and passenger traffic along the RFCs, giving adequate capacity for freight in line with market needs and ensuring that common punctuality targets for freight trains are met;
- promoting intermodality between rail and other transport modes by integrating terminals into the corridor management process.
The geographical dimension and the implementation schedule of the nine RFCs is shown below in the interactive map.
Based on Regulation (EU) No 913/2010, this map was created by RNE and agreed with all RFCs. Any use without modification of this map in electronic or printed publications is permitted with the explicit reference to the RNE as author and holder of the copyright.
