The takeover of the Customer Information Platform (CIP) by RailNetEurope (RNE) and its rollout to six participating Rail Freight Corridors (RFCs) made it possible for the CIP to become a multi-corridor tool providing harmonised information processes. This included the possibility for users to navigate easily between the information for individual RFCs displayed on the CIP.
