European Rail Facilities Portal to stimulate rail freight
The European Commission's DG Move has launched a new portal site called Rail Facilities Portal. It provides an overview of rail stations, intermodal terminals and shunting stations in Europe, including the Flemish ports.
The electronic platform has been established to encourage rail transport. It provides quick access to information on all kinds of rail facilities, in particular railfreight facilities to aid rail service planning.
Moreover, the Rail Facilities Portal helps service facilities operators to comply with their obligations resulting from directives (EU) 2012/34/EU and (EU) 2177/2017. (ben)
