Freight and Terminal Forum kicks off
On 26, 27, and 28 March the Freight and Terminal is taking place in Utrecht, the Netherlands. This is the first freight edition of the RailTech Europe. Three days of free workshops are lined up, in addition to a one-day conference programme about terminal efficiency.
The first high-speed railway service for freight, the Swiss modal shift policy or railway for 740-metre trains; all these have in common that they are discussed in a workshop. All three days are filled with workshops relevant to the rail freight sector. They are free of charge for visitors of the Freight and Terminal Forum. Once you have registered for the event, you can visit the workshop programme and sign up for the session of your choice.
On 28 March a conference takes place about terminal efficiency for rail. Moderated by Ral-Charley Schultze, Head of the UIRR, this day brings together stakeholders from the rail freight and terminal industries. Terminals and rail are intrinsically linked. Efficient terminal can improve the attractiveness of rail freight considerably. Topics to be discussed are terminal policy, time of arrival, data sharing, digitalisation and automation.
