The year 2019 was a mixed year for RFC North Sea - Mediterranean in terms of both volume and punctuality

Welcome to the website of RFC North Sea – Med!

In this year 2020, when the whole planet is hit by Covid-19, when the world economy has stopped, when we are all living the same existential experience with its uncertainties and anxieties but also its new solidarity, the year 2019 seems far away. However, 2019 has seen upheavals with a serious impact on traffic, leading to a 4% decrease in total traffic on the Corridor compared to 2018. We can highlight for example the floods that led to long line closures, interrupting traffic to Spain, or the strike in France of a rare intensity that generated a drastic drop in traffic at the end of the year and a strong loss of credibility of the railways.
However, following the pandemic, rail freight has regained its rightful place, a strategic position. Once this pandemic ends, will continues to irrigate the continent. It will depend only on us to anchor in time this new status acquired during the crisis. Yet a few initiatives taken in 2019 to improve the performance of the Corridor, the effects of which should begin to be seen in 2020, could well help us to make progress in this direction.

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.
