TfL’s scheme adds to existing project reference schemes set up by Network Rail and HS2 Ltd.

Neil Walker, Exports Director at the Railway Industry Association (RIA), said: “It is fantastic to see Transport for London – another major client body – join the Rail Supply Group’s export reference scheme. As companies across the sector tell us, having an easy and accessible way to get references from these organisations goes a long way in supporting their ability to export abroad.

“As the Government looks to build a truly ‘Global Britain’ through new trade policies, schemes like this will be pivotal in supporting UK businesses to sell their products and services across the globe and demonstrates Government and industry working together positively to further enable UK exporters.”

“By helping our supply chain to grow their share of the global rail market we are not only encouraging the country’s economy to thrive, we are also supporting them so they can grow, driving further productivity and benefits for all.”
