EURO CAREX : Cargo Rail Express

Major steps



  • At the start of 2007, a de facto Liege Carex association is formed, following the example of Roissy Carex.


  •  In July 2007, Liege Carex pilots a study financed by the Transport Minister, André Antoine, and the Economy Minister, Jean-Claude Marcourt.


The study must:

- Check the technico-economic feasibility of the Freight TGV project,

- Examine the constraints of direct routes to destinations other than Roissy Carex,

- Determine the best site for a Cargo TGV Terminal, taking account of the expectations of air operators present on the site and analyse the market.


After a European tender, it is entrusted to Ernst & Young.
