Germany to reduce rail freight track access charges

Tags: , ,


RAIL freight operators in Germany will be charged lower rates for using infrastructure in accordance with a new rail freight master plan announced by Germany’s federal minister for transport and digital infrastructure.

“Our goal is to shift more freight transport to environmentally-friendly rail, to increase the market share of the sector and to strengthen the industry permanently,” he said. “In the coming year, the federal government will significantly reduce rail freight prices for rail freight transport. To this end, we are providing €350m within the 2018 budget. This will make rail freight transport cheaper.

The plan, which was drawn up in consultation with the rail freight industry, proposes upgrading lines and major junctions, which are important for freight transport, and extending passing loops to accommodate 740m freight trains.
