A standardised language code for rail freight operations

Marinov, Marin, Zunder, Tom, Arnoldus, Remco and Van Der Moolen, Cees (2012). A standardised language code for rail freight operations. Transport Problems, 7 (2), pp. 141-148.


In this paper a standardised language code for rail freight operations is developed that aims to facilitate communication between dispatchers, train drivers and traffic managers when running freight trains abroad. In developing the language code the existing situation in the bi-lingual Belgian railways has been taken as a starting point. Communication codes from public services like police, fire brigade, ambulance and military services have been studied. It is believed that, if implemented, the code will improve significantly integrated rail freight services in Europe.
