The European Rail Freight Line System (ERFLS) is a new concept of liner intermodal freight trains. It has been developed recently under the EU Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).
One basic result of ERFLS is that the elaborated concept is feasible on the Rhine-Alpine Corridor. Cornerstones of the concept are smart terminals reducing dwell times, requiring an adaption in the terminal at relatively low costs. With several short stops at terminals along transport corridors such as the Rhine-Alpine Corridor, intermodal units get loaded or unloaded. By building a system of terminals along a corridor, transport of goods by train will become more flexible and modal shift from road to rail at regional level is fostered.
The Interregional Alliance for the Rhine-Alpine Corridor EGTC invites all interested stakeholders, like rail operators, intermodal operators, shippers, policy makers etc. to learn about the findings of the project. This presentation is followed by a discussion about the opportunities to implement such a system and possible next steps for realizing “ERFLS trains” between smart terminals in order to demonstrate the concept and its advantages in practice.
The technical summary of ERFLS is available on our website under https://egtc-rhine-alpine.eu/download/erfls-european-rail-freight-line-system-2/#.
The draft agenda and a summary of the conclusions and recommendations are attached!
