Press Statement: Learnings from Rastatt

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.
