60. New Date for RETRACK Pilot Demonstrator Train
February 10th, 2009
Gerwin Zomer, Project Co-ordinator of the RETRACK project issued the following statement on 10 February 2009. The Credit Crisis poses new challenges and opportunities to the collaborative business model for a RETRACK demonstration pilot train.

The RETRACK project is applying an innovative rail freight service concept to the movement of rail freight along the rail corridor between the ports in North-western Europe and Constanza (Romania) on the Black Sea.

The current economic situation and subsequent drop in freight volumes is a new challenge for the business models in RETRACK which are being considered to demonstrate innovative rail freight services along the corridor. It is now relevant to consider additional collaborative business models and opportunities and to postpone the pilot train demonstration to September 2009.
