Freightliner has welcomed publication of the Rail Freight Strategy by the Department for Transport. Recognising the positive benefits that rail freight delivers for the UK economy and its role in helping to reduce carbon emissions, the company are delighted that this important publication has been issued.

“The Strategy emphasises the importance of having a clear policy framework to support rail freight to achieve its potential,” said Russell Mears, Freightliner European CEO and Chair of the Rail Delivery Group’s (RDG) Freight Group.

“It sets out a clear vision for how rail freight can continue to grow and identifies opportunities for industry partners to collaborate and innovate in order to help deliver increased environmental and air quality benefits, relieve the pressure on our road network and increase the productivity of British businesses.

“We recognise that it will be for the industry, including the rail freight operators, to deliver the vision and we welcome the sense of direction that this Strategy provides in helping the industry plan ahead.”
