Kloeckner – A Supply Chain Partner for the UK Rail Sector

The rail sector is essential as a means of public transport as well as a method of freight. Before the current events, the number of people in the UK using rail transport increased rapidly, compared to coaches and buses. Since 2000, the demand for rail has seen a constant increase in the UK. Rail freight accounted for 9% of all domestic freight moved in the UK in 2017. Rail freight also offers a more sustainable way to transport goods as it emits 76% less CO2 compared with road freight.
