According to article 18 of Regulation (EU) 913/2010, Rail Freight Corridor North Sea - Baltic draws up, regularly updates and publishes a Corridor Information Document (CID).

The aim of elaborating the CID is to present information on the rail infrastructure of the entire Corridor, in particular as regards commercial and legal access conditions in order to facilitate the applicants’ business in international rail freight transport.

This document contains: all the information in relation with the Corridor contained in the national network statements,  information on Terminals, information on capacity allocation (C-OSS operation),  traffic management also in the event of disturbance, description of measures for the implementation of the Corridor,  the essential elements of the TMS that should be carried out on a regular basis,  the indicative investment plan.

This CID applies the RNE CID Common Structure so that all applicants can access similar documents along different corridors and in principle, as is the case with national Network Statements, find the same information at the same place in each one.


The CID consists of five Books:  

Book 1: Generalities  

Shows the way the RFC North Sea - Baltic is organized and provides an overview of the information in the CID.

Book 2: Network Statement Excerpts 

Provides relevant information of the network statements regarding the six countries involved in the Corridor.

Book 3: Terminal Description 

Provides key information regarding the terminals that are part of the Corridor. 

Book 4: Procedures for Capacity and Traffic Management 

Provides all the information about the rules and procedures inherent to capacity and traffic management, namely the priority rules for the capacity allocation.

Book 5: Implementation Plan 

Presents the strategic objectives pursued by the Corridor, the chief measures taken to set up the North Sea - Baltic Corridor and the investments planned for the short, medium and long term.
