Tratos Joins Senior Rail Community at RIA

Tratos attended the annual RIA conference in London this week (October 22).

The RIA Conference is the Railway Industry Association’s highlight attracting, as it does, businesses of all sizes across clients, decision makers, influencers and policymakers.  It provides the forum for a day of informative discussions and networking.

This year’s Conference theme was “Growing a sustainable rail industry in uncertain times,” which was fitting given the UK’s imminent EU departure in March 2019.  Combined with a new Control Period approaching and the Government’s challenge to decarbonise and digitalise, it is a crucial time for the sector. 

Chris Harris, sales manager at Tratos said: “This was an important event for Tratos to attend. Navigating the risks and opportunities these changes will bring to the rail industry will be vital in ensuring businesses can continue to grow and develop, so there’s never been a better time to examine more closely, and collaboratively, the challenges and opportunities on the horizon.

“Tratos is an active innovator in the rail sector and is particularly keen to look at what can be done to support success as the political and industry landscape changes and new risks surface”.

At the conference, Tratos joined a number of senior players across UK rail, including Transport Secretary Chris Grayling, Shadow Transport Secretary Andy McDonald, Network Rail Chief Executive Andrew Haines, National Infrastructure Commission Chair Sir John Armitt, Crossrail Chairman Sir Terry Morgan, Porterbrook Chief Executive Officer Mary Grant and Transport for the North Chief Executive Barry White. The conference was moderated by Transport Times Chief Executive David Begg.
