ECCO Phase 3

Start: 2018-01-1

End: 2019-12-31

Project code: 2018/FRE/586

Project director: Sandra GEHENOT

Project manager: Joost OVERDIJKINK

With Regulation 913/2010, the EU intended to stimulate rail freight to become a competitive and sustainable transport mode.
6 Rail Freight Corridors (RFC) were implemented at the end of 2013, 3 additional ones at the end of 2015, and others in the following years.
However, the Regulation only defined general rules for setting up the corridors, and the need for harmonisation and coordination, were somewhat overlooked.
Although the ECCO project has broken some grounds and flagged up the need for a harmonised and cross corridor perspective in order for rail freight to be competitive, the process is however not mature enough to stand on its own and needs further support.
At the moment a dialogue between RFCs and RUs, and among RUs themselves, has begun at the initiative of ECCO
ECCO phase 3 is proposing the required support and coordination.
