Supply chain

Our extensive supply chain network plays its part in helping us run a safe and efficient railway 

We’re dependent on our suppliers to help us deliver rail services across Britain – we spend over £7bn per year with our supply chain, the large majority of which are UK based companies.

Since April 2015, we’ve worked directly with over 4,000 suppliers, 2,500 of which are small to medium enterprises (SMEs). Our spend with large suppliers has also provided sustainable demand to many British SMEs through the extended supply chain.

Our supply chain is divided into Route Services (goods and services) and Infrastructure Projects (delivery of our major projects).
