Next steps

DB Netz AG is committed to bringing Rail Freight Corridors closer to market needs.

This includes product innovation, further developments of PCS as well as the harmonization and consistency of processes and offer across the RFCs. Aiming at developing RFCs in a network, DB Netz AG closely cooperates with RNE.

The opinion of DB Netz AG’s customers is a key in this endeavor. Regular meetings, known as Advisory Groups of the RFCs, bring together Railway Undertakings (RUs), terminal operators, rail infrastructure managers, allocation bodies, the Ministries in charge of Transport and the European Commission. These meetings, which take place on each RFC twice a year in average, serve the purpose of an open dialogue on RFC-relevant issues in view of improving the quality of international rail freight service.
