The International Union of Railways (UIC) represents globally the rail transport sector. One of its main functions is to promote the development of the Rail Transport.

In addition, the International Union of Railways (UIC) harmonizes and improves the conditions of the railway lines as well as the railway operations.

The International Railway Union also promotes the interoperability between the rail systems (concept of International Railway Solution).

The International Union of Railways (UIC) works in the following areas: passengers, cargo, rail system (including infrastructure), wagons, railway operations...

Despite the economic uncertainty, the railway worldwide situation is improving, increasing the market shares in China, India, Australia, South Africa and the U.S. by 40%.

In the U.S. and Russia, the total amount of the goods transported by rail is already above the levels prior to the global crisis.

The development of the Euro-Asian Euro-Asian transport corridors (Trans-Siberian routes, the new Silk Road - Eurasian Land Transport Initiative) is vital for the International Railways Union. They can even be an alternative to the maritime or road transport.
