Our Vision: ScanMed RFC as an integrator of international rail freight services


ScanMed RFC, together with its users and partners, is building a new approach whose keywords are:

  • Trust: building a transparent, committed and inclusive partnership among all stakeholders
  • Innovation: co-developing innovative services and solutions
  • Reliability and Simplicity: increase our competitive advantage against other transport modes

Our Mission

Providing better railway services for freight transportation in Europe, to attract more goods on the railway: this is our Mission.

Strategy: ambitious goals and co-creation 

The new vision of the Corridor was translated into a Strategy Paper, which is available here.

The Strategy Paper is primarily aimed towards Corridor users (Railway Undertakings and their customers, i.e., End-Users) and Corridor partners (Terminals and Ports). It will also be shared with the Ministries in charge of transport and third-parties, such as the European Commission.

It sets the direction for developing ScanMed RFC in the next five years.

The implementation

To implement the strategy, ScanMed develops a yearly work plan whose main lines will be published on the website at the beginning of each year

In the spirit of co-creation, ScanMed RFC and its partners set up a methodology for implementation described in the document “Principles for Business for Co-development” (also available here). The method is shared between the Infrastructure Managers, users, partners, supervisors, and facilitators of ScanMed RFC.
