As the centre of competence for international rail transport law, the CIT always supports its members. It focuses its attention on wherever the future potential lies.

A conspicuous trend of international transport is digitisation. The CIT is creating the foundations to raise the profile of electronic tools: electronic consignment notes and wagon notes increase efficiency. Interactive maps give CIT members clear information on the scope of the different legal regimes in rail and multimodal transport. The new CIT Manual for International Rail Tickets (MIRT) focuses on new developments in ticketing.
