InnoTrans Podcast: Rail transport as the backbone of mobility
In the interview he will look at the prospects for high-speed rail freight and present new technological vehicle concepts able to assist the transition to efficient rail transport:
“Railway transport is a central means to achieve the European Green deal. To master this role, it will see a transformation leading to the following setting in 20 to 30 years from now: The acceptance and attractiveness of the rail system is very high and both decarbonization and an increase in energy efficiency in the entire value chain per person/km or ton/km has been achieved on a large scale. Remote regions are reintegrated into the rail system; transfer and handling times are minimized; society sees the railways as the backbone of mobility“, said Prof. Dr. Siefkes.
The next episode of the InnoTrans Podcast will be aired on 10 August when Chris Snyder, CEO of Via, will be the guest.
