Annual Report for 2020
RFC Amber is presenting its second Annual Report. This new report gives a comprehensive summary about the activities and achievements of 2020 which was a year of unprecedented challenges.
The work of RFC Amber focused, besides maintaining the “everyday business”, such as the work of our C-OSS and in the Working Groups, on finalising key tasks under the Programme Support Action for RFC Amber. Here, the finalisation and publication of the RFC Amber Bottleneck Study deserves to be specially highlighted. Thanks to the extension of the Action, also the postponed activities can be funded from the current program.
2020 was also the first year of real corridor traffic which enabled to measure the train performance of the corridor through the commonly applicable KPIs.
Discussion and preparation of potential new, future projects also started in 2020, aiming at further developing our corridor and better exploiting its market potential. This process is characterized by a close cooperation among Rail Freight Corridors in the RFC Network. RFC Amber was among the initiators of two projects, addressing market prospects in Euro-Asian traffic and exploiting potentials of technical solutions for digitalization and automation. Also, to be emphasized is, that the preparation of projects takes into account input provided by the RFC Amber RAG-TAG, demonstrating our aim to enhance customer orientation.
Diverse sub-chapters of the report describe the capacity management, incident management, digitalisation and a wide range of marketing and publicity activities. An outlook into the future finishes the report.
We wish all of you a pleasant reading of this Annual Report.
