AIM

The AIM Agreement regulates the relationships between carriers. More specifically, it contains common rules on the settlement and allocation of paid compensations for transit damage between successive carriers in international rail freight traffic. Its purpose is to make this process simple, fast and cost-effective and thus to strengthen the competitiveness of the railways in relation to other modes of transport. At the same time, the agreement takes into account the obligation and interest of railway undertakings to behave commercially and improve their performance.
