Successful roll-out of Customer Information Platform (CIP) to two new Rail Freight Corridors
Cooperation between RNE and the Rail Freight Corridors (RFCs) is once again proving fruitful. The Customer Information Platform (CIP) has been successfully rolled-out to the RFCs Mediterranean (RFC 6) and Orient/East-Med (RFC 7). The information concerning these two RFCs is now available in the CIP productive environment powered by RNE under https://info-cip.rne.eu.
With this, the CIP displays information on railway infrastructure in 24 European countries covering the network of 8 out of 11 RFCs: Rhine-Alpine (RFC 1), North Sea-Mediterranean (RFC 2), Scandinavian-Mediterranean (RFC 3), Atlantic (RFC 4), Baltic-Adriatic (RFC 5), Mediterranean (RFC 6), Orient/East-Med (RFC 7) and North Sea-Baltic (RFC 8). The remaining RFCs are scheduled to implement CIP by the end of 2020.
In parallel, the user interface of CIP is continually being enhanced to further increase the experience of CIP users. Furthermore, the recently extended route-finding functionality enables the users of CIP to search for their preferred connection by filtering the corridor routes based on the available axle and/or meter load.
