However, rail freight transport has faced numerous barriers in its development, and its growth is held back by its lack of competitiveness with other modes of transport such as road transport. Regulation (EU) 913/2010 was designed to facilitate rail freight transport across the EU rail network, through ...

Free movement of people and goods is a fundamental freedom of the EU and its single market.

Intelligent transport systems (such as, journey planners, travel information services, intelligent message signs and traffic lights, safety applications and traffic ...
