AIM

This agreement AIM governs the legal relationships between carriers. It includes the standard instructions for calculating and sharing compensation between successive carriers for international movement of freight by rail. It is intended to permit simple, rapid and economic processing of this traffic and in consequence to improve the competitiveness of the railway in relation to other modes of transport. The agreement also takes account of the obligation placed on railway undertakings (RU) to follow market oriented policies and of their interest in increased efficiency.
