<Back to list

The International Union of combined Road-Rail transport companies (UIRR) speaking for Europe’s road-rail Combined Transport operators – customers of quality rail freight services – expressed its opinion about the European Commission’s proposal to recast the Directives making up the First Railway Package in a Position Paper.

UIRR evaluated the proposal from three aspects: (i) will it create the needed stable financing for rail infrastructure managers, (ii) will it improve the fairness and transparency of competition within the rail sector, and (iii) will it contribute to reducing the inequality between the competitive framework conditions of the competing modes of transport.
