Electronic recording of train data

The transmission of data is an essential part of train preparation. From 1 April 2024, the electronic transmission of the train and wagon data is mandatory for all RUs in freight transport in accordance to the Network Statement. From this date, all required train and wagon data must be transmitted electronically to ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG at least 30 minutes before the scheduled departure time. If the wagon data is not submitted on time, this may delay the departure of the train. The RU is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the data.
