Freightliner triumphs at National Rail Awards 2021.
“I am delighted with Freightliner’s win at this year’s National Rail Awards during what has been one of the toughest periods in the UK rail industry’s history,” said Freightliner’s Managing Director of UK Rail Tim Shakerley. “Rail freight has shown incredible resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic, continuing to transport essential supplies, materials and goods around the country. So, to be recognised in this category is especially pleasing.
“As we emerge from the pandemic, Freightliner is keen to continue the positive work to enable these efficient and productive services to remain in the timetable and to look for further opportunities to lengthen services or speed-up average running times. As well as the productivity gains, there are compelling environmental reasons to support this improved efficiency, with a significant reduction in carbon emissions and a reduction in NOX and other particulates.”
