Since 2002 our team of “railheads” have helped clients develop new rail services and interchanges, by providing independent and objective consultancy support. Our team collectively provides over 250 years of experience in the rail and wider logistics sector, most of this gained in frontline management and operational roles.
So if you’re looking to use rail for the first time, or improve existing services and facilities, we can help.
We provide real-world experience in rail and intermodal transport. We can assist with design and planning, finance and procurement, development, marketing and operations.
Our clients include ports, manufacturers, retailers, developers, logistics providers, waste contractors and government bodies, both in the UK and mainland Europe (as some of our railheads also have multilingual skills).
We also have a very strong track record in securing UK and EU grants, totalling over £20m to date, with a success rate in excess of 90%. Our experience in new development projects covers more than 50 million square feet of rail-linked industrial floorspace, with an equally strong track record in helping secure consent on Appeal and through the Development Consent Order process.
We’ve also been at the forefront of cutting-edge rail freight services, with 20 years of experience helping create high-speed, low-carbon urban distribution solutions for carriers, couriers and major retailers.
Our work in helping clients deliver new services and interchanges has been recognised by the UK Rail Freight Group, Intermodality collecting the award for Support Service Provider of the Year in 2011. In 2013 we collected first prize for rail freight at the EIT innovation competition on behalf of client Stobart Group. In recent years we’ve also sponsored the Excellence in Mode Shift Award, part of the Freight Transport Association’s Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme’s annual awards. We’re also registered with the RISQS Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (No.6688).
