2020, a new decade :
An environment in favour of rail transportation.
Sustainable development became a most important item, transportaton by rail is a perfect tool for this purpose. The European Green Deal as well as the new “LOM” in France and other initiatives, bringing both investments and new incentives, are meant to increase significantly the part of rail as transport mode. The current 9% share in France and Belgium are way below the European average of 18%, while Austria and Switzerland even count above 30% !
Eurorail is very well positioned to act in the transition to sustainable development.
We combine values with know-how. Our independancy and strong agility towards customer needs, in combination with “safety first mentality” makes us apart. Thanks to the diversity of our customers we manage a large spectrum of activities, like short-liner operations, multimodality, international links with a.o. platforms in France, Belgium and Italy.
** CO2 emissions economies comparing railtransportation to roadtransport. For example a train of 27 wagons transporting 960 tons of high density goods replaces 40 trucks. For a traject of 660 km between Paris and Marseille the average CO2 emission of a train is 2,34 tons (3,69g CO2 /t*km) where by road this would be 58,98 tons (93,1g de CO2 /t*km) thus economising 56,64 tons of CO2 !
