Scooping up prestigious industry award
DB Cargo UK has been awarded a number of accolades at this year’s prestigious Railfreight Awards. The introduction of the company’s new business resource planning tool (BRP) was picked as overall winner of the innovation and technical development category, beating off stiff competition from a number of other railfreight companies.
The new BRP tool has revolutionised DB Cargo UK’s approach to managing services and has led to a significant reduction in annual operating costs. The company came runner-up in the railfreight project of the year category for the conversion of 110 redundant coal hoppers into new, state-of-the-art HRA aggregate hopper wagons. (ben)
