F3: Fast Frequent Fulfilment

The overarching objective is to investigate and validate whether an innovative integrated rail/inter-modal product and service offer can compete on commercial (end to end cargo movement), technical, operational and asset management terms within the competitive domestic logistics market which is dominated by all road solutions. This objective will be achieved by demonstrating quantifiable monetary advantages to shippers, forwarders and wider cargo interests to the point where the new product and service offer is capable of becoming a routinely accepted, practical and integrated element in domestic logistics networks. Other non-accounting benefits arising from the adoption of this new product and service offer will be identified and quantified.
