Your Connection: Exclusive access to the rail network
Certain large companies, factories and quarries use rail to make their warehouses, buildings and workshops accessible for receiving and transporting goods. For this, they have their own tracks on private land.
Thanks to Your Connection, they are able to connect these private tracks to the Belgian public rail network by means of a junction and the necessary equipment for its proper functioning (points). These junctions are not just major assets in industrial and logistical centres, but also in Belgian ports.
Improve access to industrial sites
Private connections strengthen the logistics strategy (freight transport) of companies. Your Connection connects their private installations to the public rail network via an exclusive access point, thus improving their accessibility. Your Connection offers industrial or logistics sites an added strategic value: multi-modality. Rail offers more environmentally-friendly mobility.
Infrabel takes responsibility, free of charge, for providing equipment and maintenance for the junction with the Belgian network. However, installation and maintenance of the private track is the company’s responsibility.
For all requests to set up Your Connection, Infrabel’s experts offer a detailed feasibility study. This in-depth analysis will highlight the potential of industrial sites and the opportunities for junctions with the national network.
