The Commission confirmed that on 18 June 2013 it carried out unannounced inspections at the premises of several companies in several Member States active in the sector of cargo train transport services to South Eastern Europe. The Commission has reasons to believe that the companies concerned may have violated Article 101 of the TFEU, which prohibits anticompetitive practices such as price fixing and customer allocation. The Commission officials were accompanied by their counterparts from the relevant national competition authorities. Source: Commission Press Release 19/6/2913
