TAF-TSI - Revitalising European Rail Freight Using System Integration and Data Exchange as Strategic Tools

This paper illustrates how Commission Regulation (EC) No 62/2006 “Technical Specification for Interoperability for Telematics Applications Freight (TAF-TSI)” addresses the Lisbon Strategy for sustainability and job creation by mandating data exchange as a basis for enhancing service reliability and cost reduction in the European rail freight market. The implementation of the TAF-TSI represents the most ambitious system integration project ever undertaken by the European rail freight industry. The project is based on harmonized business processes supported by standardized messages. The implementation of the underlying data exchange platform, peer-to-peer architecture and normalized semantic data definition is addressed.
