Infrabel offers rail operators a flexible train path reservation system. At various different times, whether in the long term, short term, or through our Real Time service, they are able to introduce or adapt their capacity request. As infrastructure manager, Infrabel allocates rail operators all the capacities they require (train paths ) to run on the Belgian rail network. Our employees define the timetables by combining data about your requirements and network availability.

Infrabel ensures the real-time tracking of your dispatches via the Business Corner secure extranet site. Information about dispatches is available in just a few clicks.
