Rail Freight Corridor Rhine-Alpine


Quantification of modal shift potential on the Rail Freight Corridor Rhine-Alpine

The study, coordinated by TRT and involving other relevant partners, aims to investigate the resilience of the rail freight service, in terms of modal shift potential from road to rail on the Rail Freight Corridor Rhine-Alpine and how the competitiveness of rail freight services operating on the Corridor may benefit due to specific cost savings.

The work is structured by three consecutive activities (WPs): data collection and analysis, quantification of costs saving,  quantification of modal split potential. Each WP represents a specific stage of the study and it deals with the three study topics (heavier trains, reduction of stops, increase punctulaity and reliability).
