The Action will implement a real demonstration of a tracking information and Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) sharing software in a series of existing rail freight services run by intermodal operators, mainly in the Rhine-Alpine Core Network corridor.
Increased sharing of real-time tracking information and ETA among railway Infrastructure Managers, Railway Undertakings, intermodal operators, terminals and end-users (shippers) is essential to improve the efficiency of the logistics chain and the competitiveness of railway with respect to road transport.
The results of the Action will underpin the work done by Member States and European institutions for eliminating legal, operational and technical obstacles in the electronic exchange of information in Road-Rail Combined Transport.
