The aim of DP-RAIL is to overcome and transform the fragmented data exchange landscape and enable standardised message exchanges compliant with the EU Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TAF TSI).
DP-RAIL will provide central tools to enhance standardisation and support smaller RUs with limited or no IT to become TAF TSI compliant. As a first step, DP-RAIL aims to address the digitalization of core rail operational processes.

Why are we doing this?
Insufficient product attractiveness in terms of transparency, reliability, and transport time
High degree of costly manual work in operations
Insufficient asset utilisation
Low transparency due to non-standardized, bilateral data exchange
High lead time in train path assignment
No dedicated capacity for rail freight
Insufficient train path quality
Lack of interoperability
Not standardized, country-specific operations and technical requirements
Limited infrastructure capacity
No level playing field for rail freight
Much higher external costs of road borne by society
Other modes of transportation, e.g. road
What do we want?
To enable seamless interoperable data exchange across borders and companies
TO ALLOW LOW-COST INTEGRATION OF SMALL(ER) ENTITIES AND PLAYERS
To enhance standardisation and support TSI implementation
To avoid multilateral, customized and costly interfaces
To reduce manual data gathering efforts for participating entities
To enable better utilization of cApacity
To support EU environmental goals
To enable for future 3rd party innovation
