The Scandinavian-Mediterranean Rail Freight Corridor (ScanMed RFC) crosses Europe from North to South like a spine of over 7.500 km. Its central location within the continent, enormous north-south extension, and the fact that it passes through some of Europe’s major economic backbones are all key factors underscoring the Corridor’s importance.
ScanMed can be said to be two corridors in one. In the North, it connects the Scandinavian countries to their main continental markets. In the South, it connects two of Europe’s most important economies, namely Germany and Italy.
ScanMed’sTransport Market Study (TMS) predicts continued growth in the number of freight trains passing through the Corridor. Research also shows that intermodal trains account for 36% of freight trains, while single wagon load accounts for 38% of trains.
ScanMed’s seven Infrastructure Managers (IMs) join efforts to improve the offer to customers throughout Europe, thus strengthening the competitiveness of rail freight.
The Rail Freight Corridors (RFCs) are the arteries of Europe, ensuring the free, unhindered flow of goods from north to south and from east to west. In the center of it all, crossing the entire continent, there is ScanMed RFC.
