International Contingency Management (ICM) Re-Routing Options Implemented in the Customer Information Platform (CIP)

The user interface of the Customer Information Platform (CIP) is continually being enhanced to further increase the experience of CIP users. With this regard, the International Contingency Management (ICM) re-routing options have been implemented in the CIP recently. This new functionality enables CIP users to display, in an interactive map, all ICM lines along their selected Rail Freight Corridors (RFCs) together with the availability of re-routing options for individual ICM lines. For every available re-routing option, the user may obtain a geographical representation of the re-routing line along with detailed information on applicable line properties along such line.

The visualisation of ICM re-routing options in the Interactive Map enables the participating RFCs to communicate their ICM-relevant information to the CIP users in an interactive and user-friendly manner. Furthermore, the newly introduced ICM re-routing options functionality is also compatible with the enhanced route planning functionality, thus enabling the users to design their custom routes and download the applicable line properties.

While most RFCs already display a complete set of their ICM lines and re-routing options in the interactive map, some are still working on completing their display. This process is expected to be completed by the end of 2020. Therefore, to obtain a complete list of ICM re-routing options of individual RFCs, the CIP users are, for the time being, kindly asked to refer to the Information Documents Tab.

CIP Offline 23.11.2020, 09:00 – 17:00

Dear CIP Users,

We would like to inform you that the migration to the new data center of RNE will take place next week 23.11.2020 Monday from 09:00 to 17:00. During this period, users will not be able to log into the system or will have difficulty working on the same. For this reason I ask you to accept our apology and try to avoid using this application on that day.

Thank you very much for your understanding!

Successful Rollout of Customer Information Platform (CIP) to RFC Amber

Cooperation between RNE and the Rail Freight Corridors (RFCs) is once again proving fruitful. The Customer Information Platform (CIP) has been successfully rolled out to the RFC Amber (RFC 11). The information concerning this new RFC is now available in the CIP productive environment powered by RNE under https://cip-online.rne.eu.

With this, the CIP displays information on railway infrastructure in 24 European countries covering the network of 9 out of 11 RFCs: Rhine-Alpine (RFC 1), North Sea-Mediterranean (RFC 2), Scandinavian-Mediterranean (RFC 3), Atlantic (RFC 4), Baltic-Adriatic (RFC 5), Mediterranean (RFC 6), Orient-East Med (RFC 7), North Sea-Baltic (RFC 8) and Amber (RFC 11). The remaining RFCs are scheduled to implement CIP by the end of 2020.

Successful roll-out of Customer Information Platform (CIP) to two new Rail Freight Corridors

Cooperation between RNE and the Rail Freight Corridors (RFCs) is once again proving fruitful. The Customer Information Platform (CIP) has been successfully rolled-out to the RFCs Mediterranean (RFC 6) and Orient-East Med (RFC 7). The information concerning these two RFCs is now available in the CIP productive environment powered by RNE under https://info-cip.rne.eu.

With this, the CIP displays information on railway infrastructure in 24 European countries covering the network of 8 out of 11 RFCs: Rhine-Alpine (RFC 1)North Sea-Mediterranean (RFC 2)Scandinavian-Mediterranean (RFC 3)Atlantic (RFC 4)Baltic-Adriatic (RFC 5)Mediterranean (RFC 6), Orient-East Med (RFC 7) and North Sea-Baltic (RFC 8). The remaining RFCs are scheduled to implement CIP by the end of 2020.

In parallel, the user interface of CIP is continually being enhanced to further increase the experience of CIP users. Furthermore, the recently extended route-finding functionality enables the users of CIP to search for their preferred connection by filtering the corridor routes based on the available axle and/or meter load.

Website relaunch

As of 18 December 2017 the info pages of RailNetEurope’s IT tools were relaunched in a revised and improved version. All relevant information about CIP is now available in a more user-friendly and modern way.

The website is designed to provide potential and existing users with a first insight into the functionality of RNE’s IT Tools. To meet modern-day standards, the website is modular and responsively designed in order to accommodate users who access the site through mobile devices. The redesign of this website was the final step of a complete relaunch of RNE’s web presence with the goal of making information easily accessible to all users.

Good quality websites are always depending on users’ input. Information updates and comments are therefore very welcome and can be requested at/addressed to communications@rne.eu.
