A New Competitive, Reliable, Sustainable and Connected Rail Freight Transport

Brussels, 26 June 2017

This public event targets experts from railway undertakings, infrastructure managers, wagon keepers, wagon operators, European and National authorities, decision makers for traffics, railway manufacturing industry, rail freight stakeholders and academia across Europe.

The workshop will focus on innovations in wagon design, in connectivity, in terminal design and operations to match the changing needs of the logistics market in order to allow rail freight transport to find its right place in the supply chains.

The program will present design innovations for wagons and their integration and impact on various train types, the most recent solutions for on-train and train-to-ground connectivity leading to the future freight train of 2030 and a vision for 2050. Cost benefit analysis and possible roadmaps to integrate these innovations will be presented and time will be dedicated to exchanges with the audience.

The event will also address innovative designs and operations for marshalling yards and multimodal rail-road/sea terminals that have been elaborated, simulated and economically assessed, both for medium-term and prospective visions.

New terminal concepts for improved asset utilization and smoother transfers will be presented and discussed with the audience.

Join us, it will be a fantastic time for looking at the future scenarios of rail freight transport in 2030/2050 and of course to boost networking!
