User Satisfaction Surveys

To investigate the level of satisfaction of customers with the performance of the corridor RFC Rhine-Alpine conducts a User Satifsfaction Survey (USS) on annual basis since 2014. The survey is carried out in a coordinated manner by a research company contracted via RailNetEurope (RNE) for all Rail Freight Corridors on basis of a harmonized online questionnaire.

The specific results for RFC Rhine-Alpine are available hereafter. RFC Rhine-Alpine has analyzed the results in detail and thanks its customers for the feedback given which allows to derive concrete improvements for the services and products of the corridor.
