Banedanmark cooperates with other European railway infrastructure managers in order to create a European rail network. The result of the cooperation is the definition of train paths in an appropriate timetable structure that enables smooth rail traffic across national borders.

EU member states have undertaken to introduce a number of cross-border rail freight corridors. The railway between Stockholm and Palermo are one of the stretches that have been identified as a strategically important railway corridor in the EU. The corridor, known as the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Rail Freight Corridor (ScanMed RFC), is of great importance for freight transport between Northern and Southern Europe. ScanMed is part of a larger network of nine European rail corridors that cross each other in strategically selected locations in Europe. With the freight corridors, a ScanMed One Stop Shop has been introduced.
Rail Net Europe
Rail Net Europe (RNE) is a European cooperation organization for infrastructure managers with a joint office in Vienna. The goal since its start in 2004 has been and still is promoting European rail traffic across national borders for both passenger and freight traffic. Over the years, the work has been aimed at harmonizing and optimizing common processes and administrative procedures. A uniform application and allocation process of capacity as well as a common structure for members' network statements are examples.
