This month was Awards month for RFG and we were delighted to announce Solent Stevedores as the well-deserved winners of our coveted Business of the Year Award.

You can also view and download images from the night on our gallery here.

Our lead story in this issue is the new GBRf maintenance hub in Peterborough, which represents a £5.75m investment in rail freight’s future. Freightliner has announced a host of new services and Nestlé and Tesco have been working on an exciting new double-stack container trial.

We also welcome a number of guest articles in this issue, including our regular Westminster Update column from JR Consulting, the Great British Railways Transition Team (GBRTT) and more.
