Rail cargo must be cost-effective, ProRail CEO tells EU Freight Day
Pier Eringa, CEO of ProRail, said: ‘’ProRail strongly believes in transport as a crucial enabler of a competitive European economy with a strong internal market. Rail transport is well-placed to deliver on the dual challenge of performance and sustainability – especially in the light of the COP21 agreement.
“However, rail – and especially rail freight – needs to become a more attractive and cost-effective option for all customers. In this regard, we confidently look at some of the EU initiatives to remove those technical and regulatory barriers in the rail sector: the Fourth Railway Package, Rail Freight Corridors, TEN-T and its funding or indeed ERTMS. If these initiatives are implemented in a smart way, rail will become more performant, dynamic, innovative and even safer than it already is.’’
