Book review

Every year the Rail Freight Group publishes a handbook of companies and organisations connected with the UK rail freight industry. This annual directory provides comprehensive listings of organisations including operators, infrastructure providers, customers and political bodies.

Introductory articles by authors including recently-appointed Secretary of State for Transport Lord Andrew Adonis and First GBRf Managing Director John Smith look at a range of issues affecting the rail freight market. Peter Binham of AECOM considers best practice in multi-modal transport, while Bill Emery of the Office of Rail Regulation looks at access charges.

The bulk of the A4-sized book is an extensive alphabetical directory, with an index by business sector and a list of contacts.
