Shift2Rail and its successor are a unique opportunity for the sector to overcome the challenges in front of us

Our Executive Director, Carlo Borghini, was recently interviewed by RailGrup to talk about the main challenges for the rail sector at European level. He underlines the importance of a shared vision on the future concept of operations and an understanding of clients’ needs in order to create a competitive European rail network. The future of the sector depends on the capacity to compete with other mobility and transport systems, taking advantage of its strengths and addressing its current limitations: capacity, cost-efficiency, information sharing, national barriers, etc.

Mr Borghini also emphasizes the key role of rail freight during the COVID-19 crisis and explains how companies, including small and medium-sized ones, can help in delivering a transformed rail system.
