our PURPOSE!

Did you know that although Central Europe is facing strong growth in traffic volume, the total volume of freight moved by rail has decreased significantly over the past few decades? Current forecasts predict that by 2030 there will be a significant increase in freight volume, and this expected growth in traffic on the streets will raise serious transport and environmental problems. To reverse this negative trend, huge investments are underway with a focus on the main rail corridors. Complementary to this initiative the REIF project aims at increasing the modal share of rail freight transport through mitigation measures for the regional rail feeder system.
