UIRR joins group of actors to raise their voice against a partial realignment of liability in the Swiss rail freight sector

 

Any revision of liability and recourse options for rail freight transport should be carried out as part of an overall view.

In order to increase legal certainty, particular emphasis should be placed on the straightforward and transparent addressing of the claims of injured third parties, the ensuring efficient transport processes in a harmonised manner from an international legal perspective.

From the point of view of rail freight actors, these three elements are of central importance for the competitiveness of rail freight transport as the undisputed safest means of transport.

---UIRR joined a large group of Swiss and European entities, actors of rail freight, who raised their voice against a limited and incomplete attempt to realign the rules of liability in rail freight between the different categories of actors.

 

Fortunately the initiative ended up being unsuccessful.
