RailNetEurope (RNE) & One-Stop Shop (OSS)

Gateway to European Rail Infrastructure

RailNetEurope - a network of European railway infrastructure managers

RailNetEurope (RNE) was established in January 2004 on the initiative of a number of European railway infrastructure managers and allocation bodies with the aim of implementing a common pan-European organisation to facilitate their international business. Today RNE has 34 full members from 25 different countries and 10 associated members (the rail freight corridors). The rail network of the member companies totals well over 230,000 kilometres.

As a founding member of RNE, DB Netz AG strives to simplify access for international customers through transparent information and harmonised processes.

One-Stop Shop - Consulting from a single source

To promote and simplify international network access, RNE member companies offer a network of so-called One-Stop Shops.

Within the framework of RailNetEurope (RNE), the One-Stop Shop (OSS) is part of an international network of European railway infrastructure companies. This cross-border network of One-Stop Shops was established to inform and advise railway undertakings (RUs) on network access and the planning of cross-border rail freight traffic.

The One-Stop Shop acts as the sole point of contact with the customer. The advantage of this offer is the international orientation of the advice.

The aim of the One-Stop Shop is to jointly increase the competitiveness of European rail freight transport by increasing capacity, improving service quality and providing better information.
