Some of the major players operating in Europe rail freight transportation market are DB Cargo, Rail Freight Cargo Austria, PKP Cargo S.A., SNCF Mobilités Group, SBB Cargo, Ferrovie dello Stato SpA, Genesee & Wyoming Inc, EQT Infrastructure II GP BV, etc.

To perform the study, TechSci Research conducted primary as well as exhaustive secondary research. Initially, TechSci Research prepared an exhaustive list of rail freight logistics operators in Europe. Subsequently, TechSci Research conducted primary research surveys, which included primary calls, email responses, etc., with the identified companies. While interviewing, the respondents were also asked about their major competitors. Through this technique, TechSci Research was able to include those rail freight operators which could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. TechSci Research analyzed product offerings, distribution channels, and country presence of all major rail freight operators across Europe.

TechSci Research calculated the Europe rail freight transportation market size using a bottom-up technique, wherein goods transport volume data of different product type, were recorded as well as forecast for the future years. TechSci Research sourced these value & volume from industry experts and company representatives, and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective rail freight operators to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as European Commission, European Rail Freight Association, Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies, whitepaper articles, annual reports, company websites, magazines and press releases of various companies engaged in rail freight transportation business in Europe were also reviewed by TechSci Research.
