The Regulation concerning a European Rail Network for Competitive Freight (Regulation EU 913/2010) established a European rail network consisting of international market-oriented Rail Freight Corridors (RFCs).

In total, there are now eleven RFCs in Europe (see map below). Aiming to coordinate activities to improve efficiency and harmonization of offer and services, the RFCs have set up the RFC Network, a platform for discussion on issues of common interest. This platform is supplemented by the High Level Group for RFCs, whose aim is to integrate the RFCs’ requirements for RNE’s tools and services.
