RSG Coronavirus Taskforce: Act Now Report sets out path for sector recovery

Today, the Rail Supply Group (RSG) – the leadership body for the UK rail supply chain – has published its report and the actions to be taken to support the best possible recovery of businesses supplying the rail industry.

By harnessing the views of the industry through an independent survey, the RSG Taskforce was able to understand the current outlook and the actions needed to support a bounce back across the rail supply chain.

The RSG’s three Act Now priorities are to:

  1. Improve work pipeline visibility and cashflow across the whole supply chain to
    allow organisations to plan and deliver with confidence
  2. Simplify data access to allow better decision making and new services to be
    developed including improved customer information
  3. Change railway access arrangements to maximise the time available and boost
    productivity
