Put rail freight at heart of post-Brexit trade

Rail freight should be put at the heart of post-Brexit trade links, the Rail Freight Group has told politicians in the run-up to the general election.

It has set out five priorities for the next government:

  1. Put rail freight at the heart of post Brexit trade links
  2. Invest in rail freight infrastructure and technology
  3. Provide a stable environment for freight to enable private sector investment
  4. Restore and promote rail freight grants to support new services
  5. Enable the development of modern fit-for-purpose terminals
