Interesting, as DFDS perfectly well, knows about logistics, thus about importance of high quality, at supply chains of Hemisphere – and that uniquely
SNCF separates passenger tracks from cargo.
For shift, needed, sooner the better, industry of railways, as well as IM:s, should learn, from modes proving high quality – from, other modes, which, all, decisively add load capacity – for sake of lower costs, etc.
(Nearness, to Market, by low risk supply chains, now is needed – and mere Goal of EU!…)
