2018 marks a pause in the 4-year continuous growth on rail freight traffic on our lines

Welcome to the website of RFC North Sea – Med!

For the first time since the start of the Corridor, 5 years ago, and after an exceptional year 2017 where the traffic progressed for almost +20% in one year, 2018 marked unfortunately a decline of rail freight traffic of -10%, bringing the growth of freight traffic since the launch of the Corridor to a +24% in 5 years. This counter-performance is mainly due to strikes in France in the second quarter of 2018, and to the application of new safety instructions on works in Belgium in the third quarter of 2018. Fortunately, in the fourth quarter of 2018, traffic is back at the same level as the one observed in 2017 around the same period.

To support its development, the corridor relies on a capacity offer, a development strategy to enhance its infrastructures performances, and the implementation of working groups with its customers and partners.

You will find in this site all the information concerning the activities of the corridor. If you do not find the information you are looking for, do not hesitate to contact our team directly.
