Dear Customers and Applicants,

For the second time running, the nine Rail Freight Corridors would like to initiate a coordinated consultation of all interested applicants, in order to collect your international capacity wishes and needs for the annual timetable 2020 and reserve capacity timetable 2019.

The result of this survey will be one of the main elements that the Rail Freight Corridors will use to build the PaP Catalogues for timetable 2020.

We invite you to list your desired international train paths to be pre-constructed as detailed as possible, from origin to destination, in the file below, including the parts of your partner companies (where available). This information will be used by the involved Infrastructure Managers to construct capacity products in a market-oriented way, under coordination of the RFCs. Upon receiving a completed file, the submitting applicant might be invited to a bilateral exchange for clarification purposes.

We can, under no circumstances guarantee the preconstruction of all expressed traffic needs nor will there be any priority in allocation linked to the construction of similar capacity, however, providing us with this information will enable us to build an international path offer closer to your needs.

The relevant documents can be found below:

The template to be used for expressing your international capacity wishes

A brief guide to help you to fill in the template

Please return your filled in file to your  C-OSS Manager (contacts below).

We ask you to submit your international capacity needs before the 1st of August, but understand that a different optimal sending date (sooner or later) might be more advisable in certain cases. Please contact your C-OSS if you have any doubts on this matter.

All C-OSS will centralise the information received and coordinate further with all colleagues of the different Corridors, with utmost respect for the confidential nature of the data. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact any of RFCs C-OSS Managers.

We thank you for your ever growing interest in the Rail Freight Corridors.

Yours sincerely,


József Ádám Balogh
