RailTech Track Access Charges Summit 2018
4 April, 2018 - 5 April, 2018
The latest EU directives and implementing regulations for Track Access Charges (TAC) aim to reduce the costs of railway operations and to harmonize TAC’s throughout Europe. The use of track-friendly rolling stock is stimulated through lower TAC’s which result in lower overall transport costs essential to competing with other transport modalities.
It seems that direct cost calculation still is kind of magic box comparing the values in different countries.
Additionally, mark-ups are everything else than harmonised. By simply looking at market segments identified by different IMs, it turns out that the new legal framework did not help to derive more uniform charges in the EU.
