DB Schenker Rail claims Rail Freight Award at the National RAIL Awards for the second year running


On Thursday 18th September, DB Schenker Rail UK won the Freight & Logistics Achievement of the Year Award at the National RAIL Awards, held in London, for the delivery of logistics for Novelis. 
The award was made for a major international freight flow carrying aluminium ingots from the UK to Germany, and aluminium coil in the reverse direction that began in December 2013. The team tackled complex logistics and delivered a reliable, punctual and successful service for the customer. Novelis previously transported the materials by ship across the North Sea, with road haulage for the UK leg of the journey. Now traffic is moved in the same wagons by a single electric locomotive for the majority of the journey with only short road hauls at either end of the route. 
Geoff Spencer, Chief Executive of DB Schenker Rail UK, said: 
"We are all very proud that this service has been recognised for its contribution to the excellence and the evolution of the rail freight industry. I am especially delighted that DB Schenker Rail UK has been recognised for the second year running. This is a major affirmation of the investment we are making and the efforts our people put in every day.” 
DB Schenker Rail UK was also highly commended in the Innovation of the Year category for the introduction of Anubis, a new order management IT system. Anubis employs advanced electronic interfaces that make it easier for customers to place an order and to track it throughout the supply chain, from door to door by rail and road, via an online portal. 
Geoff continued: "I congratulate the teams who have worked on these projects and who have had their significant contribution towards our business and customers recognised at the National Rail Awards."
