Study & Portal

The structure of the European rail freight market has profoundly changed over the past decades and road competition is further increasing. This situation is particularly challenging for last-mile operations. An easy and quick access to information about last-mile infrastructure for rail freight – specifically on rail freight access points – would improve service planning, in particular across borders.

DG MOVE has therefore taken the step to support the market with a web-based portal offering a “user-friendly access to information on last-mile infrastructure for rail freight”. HaCon as lead partner and UIC supported by UIRR, Triona and IT Kreativa have managed to develop a first pilot portal and fill it with data from dedicated regions.
