Unipart Rail’s experience in designing, delivering and supporting complex railway operating models - we have developed our operating model in collaboration with Network Rail for over 20 years - has been deployed to re-align our business to engage with Network Rail’s new operating model and to deliver supply chain solutions focused on three key elements:
Effective Planning and Sourcing: Covering tens of thousands of products, Unipart Rail has the most comprehensive catalogue of materials available to support the network. We can source items quickly from many different suppliers and by creating a “connected” bill of materials through our systems and Network Rail’s systems, we can accurately predict material demand and forecast to ensure that maintenance and enhancements are delivered on time, within budget and most importantly, with minimal time impact on passengers.
Our proposition, developed over the last 20 years and now driven by digital innovations, is a proven approach to delivering improved performance across the railway.
It will deliver:
Materials, that support the maintenance and operation of the infrastructure
Resources and technology to plan, supply and manage materials and tooling requirements
Materials delivered to the point of need at the right time and in the right configuration for installation
Our approach is unique. Underpinned by a continuous improvement culture and close collaboration with the customer and our supply chain, enabling Network Rail to focus on their core objective of “Putting Passengers First”.
