Rail freight corridor North Sea – Mediterranean
Main European railway lines
January 2016
A major European
rail freight route
Rail Freight Corridor North Sea – Mediterranean
(RFC North Sea – Med) is one of the main
railway routes and most promising rail freight
corridors in Europe. It currently links main
European ports (Antwerp, Rotterdam, Dunkirk,
Zeebrugge and Marseille) to the industrial
zones of Western Europe and to the gateways
of Southern Europe.
It will be gradually extended to be aligned with
the corresponding multimodal Core Network
Corridor.
Together with the other Rail Freight Corridors,
it builds a European network of nine corridors.
Already more than 30, 000 trains run on it,
carrying over 20 million tons on international
relations.
The ambitious aim of RFC North Sea - Med
is to enable rail transport to be more efficient
and win market shares from the road.
By improving the quality of rail services,
RFC North Sea - Med is encouraging the
modal shift from road to rail.

Easier
A single window for quality paths
Railway undertakings and other entities,
such as shippers, freight forwarders and
combined transport operators, can request
capacity for international rail freight traffic
through the Corridor One-Stop Shop and by
using the international booking system Path
Coordination System (PCS).
This capacity takes the form of “off-the-shelf”
paths, called Pre-arranged Paths (PaP).
They can be requested either for the next
annual timetable or, for more flexibility, at
short notice.
These paths benefit from a high quality:
they are defined according to the needs of
our customers and potential users who are
consulted every year;
they are reserved for international freight
traffic and benefit from a specific legal
protection against cancellation;
they are built on the basis of coordinated
works along the corridor;
they are coordinated with the paths of other
corridors.

A high level of performance
To improve the quality of traffic, trains running
on the corridor benefit from new services.
One of the main services is that, in order to
increase punctuality on the corridor, train
performance is measured and analysed.
When a train deviates from its planned
schedule, the European IT tool Train Information
System (TIS) provides the relevant information
on the delay. Railway undertakings therefore
benefit from an international view of the
punctuality of their trains, summarised in
monthly reports they receive from the Corridor
One-Stop Shop.

Safer
An optimised network
By improving interoperability, collecting
information on investments and coordinating
works along the corridor, the lines of the
corridor are optimised for international traffic
in line with the TEN-T requirements.
ERTMS
RFC North Sea - Med is currently deploying
the interoperable European Railway Traffic
Management System (ERTMS) on the
principal lines of the former Corridor C. This
system is designed to replace national ones,
which impose specific equipment on engines
running on several networks.
INVESTMENTS
Infrastructure managers exchange information
on investments which enables a better
coordination at corridor level. Over 70 projects
which may go live in a 10 year time horizon for
a total cost of approximately 6.5 billion euros
have been identified. Apart from ERTMS, they
mainly concern loading gauge enhancement
and bottleneck relief.
COORDINATION OF WORKS
Infrastructure managers coordinate the
planning of works that affect capacity at
corridor level. The intention is that a railway
undertaking wanting to run a train from
country A to country B will no longer be in a
situation where infrastructure works are at the
same time being carried out on the principal
line in country A and on the diversionary line
in country B.

Governance
An ambitious collaborative approach
EXECUTIVE BOARD
The Executive board is composed of
representatives of the six states engaged in the
corridor. Through its cooperation at the level of
the Ministries of Transport, it has the objective
of improving the conditions for international
rail freight transport.
MANAGEMENT BOARD
The Management board is formed by high
ranked representatives of the infrastructure
managers and allocation bodies of the corridor.
It has set up a permanent team and workings
groups. This streamlined structure allows the
Management board to react with promptness,
flexibility and efficiency.
ADVISORY GROUPS
RAILWAY UNDERTAKING ADVISORY
GROUP (RAG)
All railway undertakings interested in the use
of the corridor are welcome to attend this
group. It meets several times a year in order
to be consulted by the Management board on
issues which have consequences for them.
The RAG also gives railway undertakings
a platform to share, with the infrastructure
managers, allocation bodies and Ministries
of Transport of the corridor, their opinions
about their vision on the developments and
needs on RFC North Sea – Med.
TERMINAL ADVISORY GROUP (TAG)
Over 100 terminals, which are combined
transport terminals, maritime and
river ports, multimodal platforms and
marshalling yards, are situated on the
routes of the corridor. Representatives from
all these terminals meet within the TAG in
order to improve the connexion with the
corridor and to be consulted on issues of
importance to them. Here also, a platform
is given to the terminals to issue an opinion
on matters related to the corridor.
