DB Cargo UK scoops prestigious industry award!

DB Cargo UK has been awarded a number of accolades at this year’s prestigious Rail Freight Awards.

The introduction of the company’s new Business Resource Planning Tool was named overall winner of the Innovation and Technical Development category, beating off stiff competition from a number of other rail freight companies.

The new BRP tool has revolutionised DB Cargo UK’s approach to managing services and has led to a significant reduction in annual operating costs.

The company came runner-up in the Rail Freight Project of the Year category for the conversion of 110 redundant coal hoppers into new, state-of-the-art HRA aggregate hopper wagons.

And Rolling Stock Project Co-ordinator Connor Mason also came runner-up in the Young Rail Freight Professional category for his involvement and leadership in the conversion.

The winners were presented with their trophies at an informal dinner and ceremony held at the De Vere Latimer Estate in Buckinghamshire.

Chief Operating Officer Dirk Nolte said:

“This is a fantastic achievement for all those involved and reinforces our commitment to lead the next generation of rail freight here in the UK.”
