Join us for ‘The Future of Rail Freight – see how it works in the 21st century!’ event

Digital Automatic Coupling (DAC) is the driver for a digital European rail freight and the key technology to ensure Europe’s rail freight becomes more digitised, automated and efficient. DAC will foster sustainability and a more reliable supply of goods across Europe for people and businesses.

Digital rail freight will improve intermodal competitiveness of rail logistics to shift more volume to the most environmentally friendly and energy-efficient transport mode. It will also play a role as a key enabler of other technologies, such as ETCS operations without trackside equipment, and lay the basis for intelligent freight trains by offering power-supply and connectivity for future wagon fleet.
