Abstract [en]

The Øresund and the planned Fehmarnbelt fixed links have recently adopted a set of standards thatcan significantly raise the operating efficiency and capacity of freight by rail  These standards are explained in the context of the German-Scandinavian railway corridor and in comparison to the European Technical Specifications for Interoperability  Using a quantitative model, the mass and volume loading capacity per train are calculated  Compared to present limitations in the German-Scandinavian corridor, the mass loading capacity per train can be increased by 60%, and the volume loading capacity by up to 214%.
