Croatian Rail Infrastructure Manager has formally joined the EEIG Freight Corridor 6 - Mediterranean Corridor
RFC6 has now finalized the annual allocation process. We would like to inform you that for the 3rd year
RFC6 is offering capacity for requesting capacity on the corridor from now. The Pre-Arranged-Paths are already available in PCS and can be used.
Rail Freight Corridor 6 – Mediterranean Corridor has been set up on 10th November 2013 according to Regulation (EU) 913/2010 to strengthen international rail freight transport and promote sustainable mobility. Rail Freight Corridor 6 is one of the 9 corridors enlisted in the Regulation; it crosses five Countries of the European Union: Spain, France, Italy, Slovenia and Hungary (6 by 2016 with the inclusion of Croatia according to Reg. 1316/2013).
The Corridor is the result of a strong cooperation among Infrastructure Managers/Allocation Bodies belonging to the Corridor.

The Corridor Information Document provides all information in one document in relation with Rail Freight Corridor 6.
RFC User Satisfaction Survey 2015
In 2015, the Capacity offer was drastically increased and all the internal procedures and documents were revised and reinforced taking into account all the inputs coming from the railway sector.
On the basis of the RailNetEurope (RNE) structure, the Corridor Information Document, which is a single document, is consisted of 5 different Books. There are proposed structures available for each book; the Network Statement Excerpts part follows the structure of national Network Statements.
The Corridor Information Document is built up as follows:
|Book 2||Network Statement Excerpts||2015-2016|
|Book 3||Terminals Description||2015-2016|
|Book 4||Procedures for Capacity and Traffic Management||2015-2016|
|General terms and conditions||2015-2016|
|Framework for Capacity Allocation||2015-2016|
|Book 5||Implementation Plan||2015-2016|
All Books can be executed under different processes but the Network Statement Excerpts part should be drawn up in accordance with the procedure set out in Directive 2012/34/EU.
The Corridor Information Document is an international document, therefore it is written in English language.
Thanks to a fruitful and collective effort of all its members, the Mediterranean Corridor was successfully set up in 2013 fully in line with all the provisions provided by the regulation 913/2010. In 2014, the first capacity allocation phase showed a strong interest of the stakeholders in the use of the Corridor. These encouraging results, and the awareness that many processes needed to be further developed, pushed the Corridor Governance and its members to take further steps in order to improve the services offered to the customers.
Actually, in 2015, the Capacity offer was drastically increased and all the internal procedures and documents were revised and reinforced taking into account all the inputs coming from the railway sector. One of the peculiar characteristics of the Mediterranean Corridor has always been its continuous effort to keep an open dialogue with all the stakeholders. Thanks to this, the booking phase registered an increase of requests of more than 100%!
We are aware that many challenges are still in front of us: better European harmonization, better customer oriented international Time Tabling, more user friendly IT tools, etc., but the Mediterranean Corridor, which has laid down the foundations of a strong and coherent international cooperation, is ready to play its part for the benefit of the Railway sector.
