modes

Reduction of transit time

between Central Europe and Turkey/Greece

minus 15-20 % (first step)

Generation of additional volume

for rail service in the region of

at least 200 mio tonkm (first step)


Four main reasons to initiate and to push the project

1. Economic advantages (“economies of scope”)

2. Technical advantages (“knowledge transfer”)

3. Mutual Supporting (“Bench marking”)

4. Supply chain management on the whole corridor South-East Europe

Result:

Win-Win-Situation for all participants – involving on increasing freight

transport volume

Meeting:

Version:


Main targets for a common cooperation

Shorten of transport time between Western Europe and TR / GR

Growth on freight on the corridor

Utilization of cooperative business models

Creation of coherent Quality Management Systems on the corridors to get

the same understanding of “logistic transport processes”

equal conditions of transport on the whole corridor

similar production quality

Utilization of harmonized IT and Telematic systems

Knowledge transfer (Best practice)

Cooperation for interoperable operation

High quality performance of all companies is the main prerequisite to be

competitive against the road!

Meeting:

Version:


Two main approaches

1. Operative view:

Analysis of the current production system, searching for

improvements and implementation of solutions within short time (< 3

years)

2. Strategic view:

Analysis of the market and evaluation of the necessities for

infrastructure, rolling stock, technical support etc. for creating new

services in cooperation within the next years

Meeting:

Version:


Remarks

Improved procedures on existing infrastructure

Besides smaller short term measures (e.g. border stations, terminals), no

infrastructure extensions are included in this project

Advanced effectiveness and competitiveness will be achieved by:

- New Telematic systems

- Improvement and coordination of operational procedures

- New concepts for rail freight services

Meeting:

Version:


Remarks

Revealed requirements concerning the infrastructure

Infrastructure related results will be distributed to the

Infrastructure Managers through the “Infrastructure Panel”

For this (annual) meeting also Authorities will be invited to assure their support

for necessary infrastructure improvements – even if they will only be

implemented after the project lifetime (2007-2009).

Revealed requirements concerning rolling stock

Results with regard to rolling stock and other equipment will be

generally handled and used within the respective companies.

Additionally all investments which are of high importance for the international

competitiveness of rail transport can be stated in the public parts of the reports

to express the need for supplementary funding.
