VPI: Rail freight transport needs further modernisation of the infrastructure

With over 450 guests, the traditional New Year's reception of the Association of Freight Car Owners in Germany e.V. (VPI) set a new attendance record. At the 14th VPI Symposium on the following January 9th, the modernisation of the infrastructure and combined transport were the focus of the debates.
"We need a strong ramp-up of rail freight traffic!" affirmed the new Rail Commissioner of the German Federal Government, Michael Theurer, at the 15th Forum for Rail Freight Transport organized by the VDV/BME.
