Across the globe the rail industry faces significant challenges. Growth in passenger and freight traffic tests our railways to achieve and maintain higher performance under pressure. In the years ahead there will be bigger commercial and technological challenges to rail, including the need to increase capacity and customer satisfaction, while simultaneously reducing cost and carbon – all while retaining the right level of safety.
The many different organisations that play a part in the railways are all connected and dependent on one another through legal duties, contracts, procurement, relationships, and operation.
Working in isolation is not an option. By being part of the RSSB world, Carlisle Support Services and alternative specialist organisations within the Rail sector are better able to collaborate, to help shape solutions to issues of concern to us all and to benefit from the positive results and efficiencies.
“We are thrilled that Carlisle Support Services have become the first provider of FM people-based services to join the RSSB affiliate scheme. We look forward to enhancing our presence within the rail industry and utilising the expertise and collaboration available to deliver a better, safer railway.
As trusted service partners to many of the UK Train Operating Companies, it is affiliations with influential boards such as RSSB which will ensure we continuously improve upon our service delivery to our employees and clients”Paul Evans, Chief Executive Officer of Carlisle Support Services
“We’re delighted to welcome Carlisle Support Services as the first Facilities Management company to become an Affiliate of RSSB. We look forward to working with them and providing them access to our rich knowledge base and resources to support their goal of providing a clean, safe environment for the travelling public and the employees who work on the railway”Paul McLaughlin, Engagement Director of RSSB
