Our mission

Grow: We aim to move 50% more goods via the Dutch railways within the next 10 years to achieve the European sustainability targets. This is a complex task, and the Dutch rail freight sector is happy to take up the challenge.

Transparency: This initiative will unite us, and the Dutch rail freight sector will speak with 1 voice and from 1 party about how we will realize our ambitions. We will do this transparently and with a focus on the future. Because the future is ours! Are you also joining in?

Next generation (EU Year of Skills): Our goal is to promote our sector among the next generation by actively connecting young professionals within the European rail freight sector. We do this to enable innovation and highlight how the sector is working on innovation, what products are transported by rail, and what skills make this sector so interesting and challenging.
