COMMERCIAL COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE EUROPEAN RAILWAYS IN THE FREIGHT TRAFFIC SPHERE

DIE KOMMERZIELLE ZUSAMMENARBEIT DER EUROPAEISCHEN EISENBAHNEN AUF DEM GEBIET DES GUETERVERKEHRS

The substantial development of international trade exchange has not been matched by a corresponding increase in the international traffic of European Railways: as a matter of fact, the rail share of total traffic is going down. The author discusses commercial collaboration between European Railways in the freight marketing sphere: national obligations hinder the development of this collaboration and the development of standard international tariffs. Special agreements with customers should also be developed in respect of those international traffic flows where competition is very strong, taking into account the interest of participating railways, measured against the profitability of the overall traffic relation. The ultimate objective is the setting up of a European Railway Company.
