The initiative Rail Freight. The Future is Ours will put the Dutch rail freight sector on the map even better. Through this initiative, we, as a sector, will be united in our efforts to achieve sustainable, competitive and reliable freight transport. With transparent, future-oriented stories, we want to inform and inspire everyone involved with rail freight transport about the challenges that lie ahead and how we will tackle them. Together, as a sector.
With the initiative, the rail freight sector unites with the aim of transporting 50% more goods over the Dutch rail within 10 years and thus achieving the European sustainability goals.
As a second initiative, the Rail Cargo Academy has been launched that will meet the needs of students and (young) professionals in the logistics sector to gain more specific knowledge of rail freight transport. We as NSWL applaud both initiatives!
