Swedish Terminals and ScanMed: set common goals

On the 13th of February in Nässjö, we have met the Swedish International Freight Association (SIFA). SIFA is a trade association which represents some 105 Swedish companies engaged in the movement of freight. During the day, we discussed the need of cooperation between stakeholders to increase the reliability of transports on railway and add volumes of freight transport on rail. From our point of view, when there are needs of transports we can set common goals with the transport buyer and all relevant stakeholders, to boost the transport efficiency.  We also discussed the need to improve the completeness of the railway sector offer, to be more transparent and to simplify information to the users.

We’ve investigated area of improvement to increase quality and to set common plans for the contingency management so the freight will reach the final destination even in case of major disruptions. Finally we’ve had an exchange on some possible minor investments in connections to terminals along the corridor, this topic will be further discussed in the following meetings we are organising with the concerned players in the association.

Re-Routing Options & Processes 2019


Dear Sir or Madam,

The international re-routing options and processes 2019 of ScanMed are published on the RFC Customer Information Platform (CIP). They focus on ScanMed RFC sections of re-routing possibilities to manage international contingencies. The scenarios have been developed by the traffic management departments, and departments for timetabling and infrastructure of the Infrastructure Manager Members of ScanMed RFC. ScanMed RFC coordinated this process to provide with the compiled information. The ICM Handbook and Implementation processes have seen the cooperation among RFCs.

ScanMed has published the following documents:

  • ScanMed RFC Re-Routing options & processes (PDF document)
  • ScanMed RFC Re-routing overview document (Excel document)
  • ScanMed RFC Implementation Report (PDF document)

To enter the download area for the documents in CIP, please use the following link (Information Documents - Other Information Documents - RFC ScanMed - Traffic Management Documents).

The re-routing options 2019 show the status quo. We now look forward to continue discussing with Railway Undertakings, Transport Ministries, Terminals, Ports and all the other concerned stakeholders to optimise the use of capacity on the deviation routes.
