SpanSet – supporting the Rail Freight Industry as it adapts to transporting modern-day cargos to new destinations

Rail freight was traditionally based on carrying bulk heavy product such as coal and aggregates.  With the reduction of coal traffic due to power station closures rail freight declined.  This coupled with the rapid increase in demand for parcel deliveries due to internet shopping habits has presented the rail freight industry with new challenges

SpanSet are at the forefront of load security development and are ideally placed to assist the rail freight sector in rising to the challenges of modern logistics and recent changes in expectations due to the pandemic.  We can contribute knowledge and expertise to assist the Rail freight Industry as it adapts existing systems and equipment.  

As new rolling stock is developed and existing stock is repurposed, our Specialists can ensure Load Control equipment enters service fit for purpose.

The Rail Freight sector has a strong culture for standards and safety, making SpanSet an ideal partner as we offer high quality, technically supported solutions.
