On behalf of the Rail Supply Group the Rail Forum Midlands is leading on the Midlands Pilots workstream as part of the Rail Sector Deal. This workstream comprises two ‘pilots’; one of which is focussed on identifying opportunities for SMEs to collaborate to solve real ‘challenges’ and respond to opportunities provided by clients.
The third of the SME challenges again focuses on the freight industry and in particular Depot Digitalisation and Sustainability which will be officially launched at this event.
DB Cargo is the challenge lead client. They have their main depot facilities in Toton, Stoke and Crewe along with smaller depots across the UK.
