Infrastructure manager Network Rail has awarded contracts worth £800m for the haulage and operation of its engineering trains and the provision of seasonal rail treatment services in Control Period 6 which runs from 2019 to 2024.
‘These contracts demonstrate the commercially creative approach Network Rail’s supply chain now adopts’, said Director of Supply Chain Operations Rob Morton when the contracts were announced on May 15.
‘We have applied a more collaborative and forward-thinking style to our sourcing than previously, which aligns not only our goals, but those of our supply partners’, he said. ‘The new contracts provide us with sufficient flexibility to direct our spend to those suppliers who deliver the best service. We have also ensured the deals have appropriate mutual benefit to maximise their longevity and chance of delivering successfully.’
