What We Do
Cost Effective Capacity and Service Enhancements for Infrastructure Owners
Not only do network infrastructure owners face the challenge of safely maintaining and operating their existing network they need to deliver new capacity and service enhancements.
All within a limited budget and cost constraints.
The 4 Cs that together spell Infrastructure success.
The core industry challenges are neatly captured by the four Cs - enhance customer experience, increase capacity manage and reduce costs, and reduce carbon.
Core challenges each supported through new supply chain efficiencies and innovation.
Typically, infrastructure owners and operators lack a complete understanding of the materials they hold and where they’re held - keeping excessive inventory, hoarding redundant materials that should be scrapped or sold on, or stockpiling valuable materials that should be identified and made available.
Whether working directly with the network operator or their suppliers, we deliver new and innovative solutions that improve operational performance, reduce risk and optimise costs.
Increasing demands on train availability and utilisation and ever shrinking maintenance windows necessitate fresh approaches to maintenance and the provision of parts.

Unipart Dorman lightweight signals now are designated ‘self-cleaning’ and require no visits for signals in locations where they are exposed to free falling rain. It is estimated that this will reduce maintenance costs by over £4,061,000 over the life of the signals.
