Why rail bundling?
Achieving a 15% rail share requires not only a new mindset, but also thorough operational optimisation. For example, we had already developed a general rail vision for the port and signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with Railport and Infrabel.
The quality of first/last mile transportation is under pressure today due to three reasons:
- operational or infrastructure challenges
- lack of transparency
- high inefficiency due to fragmented delivery to the final destination
The solution to those challenges lies in better collaboration in port activities for conventional single-carriage transport and for block trains. This is where the project to bundle volumes by rail comes in.
