The company that operates Europe’s UK-France rail Channel Tunnel wants to introduce high-speed freight trains. Groupe Eurotunnel says it is involved with the Carex consortium which is developing high-speed rail freight options intended to replace some current short-haul flights in Europe. The consortium hopes to link up major air cargo hubs across Europe with high speed rail.

“We think that we can regenerate the rail-freight business if we are able to have a service of high quality,” Groupe Eurotunnel executive chairman Jacques Gounon said recently.
