  1. Supply/Demand, Technical and Socio-economic GLOBAL STUDY of FERRMED Great Axis Networkand its Area of influence Presentation of General Content, Conclusions and Recommendations

  2. FERRMED STANDARDS FOR THE RAIL FREIGHT GREAT AXES •  EU Reticular and polycentric network having a great socio-economic and intermodal impact. In the main branches of great axes two parallel lines: •  one giving priority or exclusiveness to freight heavy traffic •  another available for passengers and light freight (high sped trains). • Loading gauge UIC-C, width of the tracks UIC. Electrified lines. • Maximum slope 12‰ •  Trains length 1500 m. and 3.6005000 tonnes. •  Locomotive and wagon new concept •  Availability of a network of intermodal polyvalent and flexible terminals •  Unified labour, management and operational systems •  Free Competition •  30÷35% of participation of rail in long distance land transportation I. SUMMARY of the Global Study Ferrmedstandardssimplifiedversion

  3. A KEY STRUCTURAL GREAT AXIS NETWORK FOR WESTERN EUROPE The rail freight network of the FERRMED Great Axis interconnects the most important sea and inland harbour fronts; and the main East-West axes of the EU. Main Trunk Branches Length: 4.500 Km.

  4. TECHNICAL, SOCIOECONOMIC AND SUPPLY/DEMAND GLOBAL STUDY Totally business/market orientated with double approach, regional as well as European. Global study will analyze different modes of freight transportation in the whole network of the FERRMED Great Axis from three points of view: • Supply/Demand Analysis • Technical Analysis • Socioeconomic and environmental Analysis The aim is: • to match different Supply Scenarios with Demand and to balance and optimize the traffic between different modes of transportation achieving that the rail freight transportation could reach 30÷35% of the long distance land transportation rate • to put into practice FERRMED standards improving the conditions of capacity, intermodality and interoperability of the railway in the afore mentioned network. RESULT: HighpriorityRailFreightnetwork (businessoriented)
