Learn more about a new concept for an innovative rail freight transport offer that is additional to the conventional one and is capable of dramatically affecting the modal split of freight transport in the European territory.




The new offer affects all types of goods, improves door-to-door relations and re-proposes a widespread distribution as the single wagon transport, while using the existing European rail network.

The webinar will illustrate the highpoints characterising the new offer and discuss which extremely interesting technological challenges must be to overcome in order to achieve its ambitious objectives and contribute to the European targets: to shift a significant share of freight market from road to the more sustainable rail mode.

About the STARS project

The application of advanced technologies and their Europe-wide dissemination in internal company processes should help to significantly improve the adaptability of traditional SMEs from the rail and mobility sector to the changed economic environment after the Corona crisis and to increase their competitiveness on a European scale. The project thus contributes to the European Commission’s economic stimulus package. To achieve this, the STARS project aims to support international cooperation between technology-savvy SMEs/start-ups and traditional SMEs.
