Freight Corridors

Last updated 23/10/2019
The Danish Rail Regulatory Body supervices the freight rail sector under Regulation 913/2010 concerning a European rail network for competitive freight.

This regulation sets out rules for the establishment and organization of international rail freight corridors.

Denmark is a part of Scandinavian-Mediterranean Rail Freight Corridor (RFC 3) running through Oslo-Stockholm Trelleborg-Malmö-Copenhagen-Hamburg-Innsbruck-Verona-La Spezia-Leghorn-Ancona-Taranto-Augusta-Palermo.

Under the Regulation and Directive 2012/34/EU regulatory bodies are obligated to effectively coordinate and collaborate on problem solving regarding the international train path where the freight runs.

This involves, among other things cooperation to monitor the competitive situation in the corridor, and in particular to ensure non-discriminatory access to the corridor. The regulatory body also acts as an appeal court.

To ensure this cooperation the supervisors in RFC3 (including Railway Boards) have made a Cooperation agreement.
