EURO CAREX : Cargo Rail Express


Economic and environmental conditions favourable to the project

  • The Express Freight and Cargo sectors have been growing strongly over recent years in the principal airport hubs of Europe. The reduction in traffic seen in recent months as a result of the global economic crisis should be no more than temporary


  • The increasing scarcity of night-time air movement slots to reduce the noise pollution suffered by those living beneath flight paths is limiting business growth for freight operators


  • the HGV speed limits introduced on 1 January 2007, combined with the saturation of major European road routes, is making road freight transport less attractive


  • The oil price per barrel has fluctuated widely, from $75 in April 2006to $150 in August 2008, $50 in January 2009, $70 in June 2009, $80 in November 2009, $33 in December 2010, $77 in Frebruary 2010 ...


  • The growth of the high-speed rail network has created the opportunity to consider developing the complementary operation of aircraft, trucks and trains as a result of modal shift


  • The deregulation of the European rail freight market introduced on 1 April 2006 has provided further beneficial impetus


  • The local authorities and airfreight operators involved are motivated to pursue such a sustainable development project

The Carex project as part of the French government’s "national commitment to rail freight"!
