  • Caption: Video launching the findings of its study on the development of Eurasian corridors. Jointly undertaken with the Infrastructure Economic Centre consultancy (IEC) based in Moscow and Paris, the study addresses: - the major changes that have occurred in the last few years on the Northern routes; - a volume forecast until 2030; - and an analysis of the demand for rail freight transport in relation to Chinese subsidies, digitalisation of processes, border crossing improvements and transit speed. While releasing this study during this difficult time of the Covid-19 pandemic appears to be challenging, UIC remains convinced that international rail freight lines are the solution for countries. Developing a more broad sustainable network of rail roads between the different countries of Europe and Asia will be the solution for achieving fair and sustainable trade.

 FURTHER INFO

  • UIC is pleased to present the findings of its study on the development of Eurasian corridors. Jointly undertaken with the Infrastructure Economic Centre consultancy based in Moscow and Paris, the study addresses: - first, the major changes that have occurred in the last few years on the Northern routes; - second, a volume forecast until 2030; - and, finally, an analysis of the demand for rail freight transport in relation to Chinese subsidies, digitalisation of processes/ border crossing improvements and transit speed. While releasing this study during this difficult time of the Covid-19 pandemic appears to be challenging, UIC remains convinced that international rail freight lines are the solution for countries. Developing a more broad sustainable network of rail roads between the different countries of Europe and Asia will be the solution for achieving fair and sustainable trade. ____________ L'UIC est heureuse de présenter les résultats de son étude sur le développement des corridors eurasiatiques. Réalisée conjointement avec le cabinet de conseil Infrastructure Economic Centre basé à Moscou et à Paris, l'étude porte sur : - premièrement, les changements majeurs survenus ces dernières années sur les axes du Nord ; - deuxièmement, une prévision de volume jusqu'en 2030 ; - et enfin, une analyse de la demande de transport ferroviaire de marchandises en relation avec les subventions chinoises, la numérisation des processus, l'amélioration des passages aux frontières et la vitesse de transit. Bien que la publication de cette étude en cette période difficile de la pandémie de Covid-19 semble être un défi, l'UIC reste convaincue que les lignes internationales de fret ferroviaire sont la solution pour les pays. Le développement d'un réseau durable plus étendu de routes ferroviaires entre les différents pays d'Europe et d'Asie sera la solution pour parvenir à un commerce équitable et durable.
