Regrettably currently quality of service rendered, by railway operators is hampered, by infrastructure managers.
Mode is too risky, for ware owners, that have shifted strategy to “On Demand”. (Regrettably now the On Road device, for majority, is the single available – at distances, as far as 1000 km from port.)
For making railways timely, now basics, the infrastructure has to be upgraded. 32,5 ton, safely allowed, axial load should be min. at any reinvestment, etc.
