The Rail Freight Group (RFG) has appointed Hans-Georg Werner, CEO of DB Cargo UK, as its new chairman.

The RFG’s priorities for 2018 include campaigning for the introduction of sustainable track access during Control Period 6 and the construction of HS2.

Mr Werner said:

“Every year the rail freight industry carries goods worth over £30 billion. We have seen significant change in the sector and its markets and we must be prepared for more. By working together we will ensure that we remain a sustainable industry that attracts the right level of investment to ensure we can continue to deliver for our customers and the UK economy.”
