Industry and commercial

The railway is vital to Britain’s economy, creating jobs and business opportunities – and it’s a team effort between us, the rest of the rail industry and our contractors to help keep the economy on track

Rail enhances the economy’s productive potential by up to £10.2bn per year, and the railway and its supply chain support 216,000 jobs across Britain.

It’s our role to run, maintain and develop Britain’s rail infrastructure, but a successful railway is only possible in partnership with our industry partners and customers: the train and freight operating companies (TOC and FOC).
