EU Rail Freight Day 2016

The third Rail Freight Day was held on 9 December 2016 in the historic setting of Palais Ferstel in Vienna. Jointly organised by the European Commission and RailNetEurope, 250 high profile participants discussed the future of the European rail freight sector.


We hereby would like to thank everybody involved in this year’s event. Over 40 speakers offered stimulating insights into the sector during panel discussions, keynote speeches and presentations. The topics ranged from ERTMS and last mile infrastructure, to the redesign of the international timetabling process. The new conference format – with strategic lunch sessions, bringing together European key rail freight stakeholders – was highly successful and will be the basis for further collaboration in this field.
