This podcast looks at the the challenges faced when commercially competitive companies need to collaborate to help deliver a better, safer railway.
In this episode Dougie Hill, Head of National Freight Strategy & Policy at Direct Rail Services, and Geoff Spencer, former CEO of DB Cargo (UK) talk through the challenges faced to get competing companies to collaborate. Their work in the National Freight Safety Group, leading the freight sector to collaborative working, has led to the development and implementation of the Freight Integrated Plan for Safety. Some of the other freight sector achievements include common safe systems of work, a Freight Fatigue Working Group, road risk collaboration with the Driving for Better Business programme, and moving freight derailment reduction from being a project to 'business as usual'.
