The RETRACK project is has designed, developmed and implementated a commercial trans-European rail freight service along the rail corridor between Rotterdam (Netherlands) and Hungary. It demonstrates that pan European continental rail freight can be competitive, reliable and value for money.
This event will present the project’s findings and successes, covering rail freight operations, policy, infrastructure, new concepts, longer remote controlled freight trains, shorter faster trains, refrigerated goods, synergistic hub planning and the opportunities to ship by rail through Europe-Asia to China by Siberia and TRACECA. The Conference will also feature contributions from other associated RailFreight Projects such as SUSTRAIL; D-Rail; Twin Hub; Marathon and SPECTRUM. Hosted in the historic city of Budapest, at the Hungarian Railway Museum, it will appeal to policy makers, operators, researchers, infrastructure managers and potential customers of future rail freight.
