On 25 September 2019 the Polish railway sector association ProKolej organized a conference “Rail 22 – Masterplan for rail freight” at TRAKO, the biggest railway fair in Central-Eastern Europe, taking place each second year in Gdańsk in Poland. The Managing Director of the Amber RFC, Dr. Gerhard Troche, represented the corridor in the roundtable.
On 18 September 2019 the Amber Rail Freight Corridor held its grand Opening Event in the prestigious Praetorian Palace in the Slovenian seaport of Koper. EU Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc, who gave an inspiring welcome address to the participants, congratulated the Amber Rail Freight Corridor to this historic milestone and emphasized the importance of the corridor for the development of international rail freight in Central-Eastern Europe.
The Amber RFC became operational in January 2019. It is the youngest among the ten operational EU Rail Freight Corridors and the first corridor set up on the initiative of the EU Member States concerned. In order to celebrate the achievement of this important milestone together with customers and stakeholders, the Amber RFC will hold its official Opening Event on 18 September 2019 in Koper in Slovenia.
