Infrastructure Managers must strengthen their support for international services.
Rail freight companies set out their priorities following the Rastatt disaster:
- Infrastructure managers must take responsibility for developing one standard infrastructure if rail is to be competitive with road.
- Rail companies who have to adapt to different operational rules, signalling systems, language requirements, train parameters can never deliver a competitive offer.The lost customer confidence in rail as a reliable partner in the supply chain must be regained.
- Full liability for the financial damages caused by Rastatt must also be settled by DB Netz in the short term.
