What is RailData

RailData is special group of the UIC (International Union of Railways) which develops and runs IT services for European rail freight undertakings.

Our Services

RailData helps to fulfil the needs of freight rail customers with a set of IT systems. Our tools are the core element for digitalisation of international rail transport.
