This new legislation aims to boost rail freight in Europe fostering the development of a high-quality rail infrastructure management at international level. The new legislation makes it mandatory to create a European rail network for competitive freight based on nine international rail freight corridors linking the main industrial regions of Europe. This will help to reinforce cooperation between infrastructure managers and make rail freight services become more competitive and attractive.
