Rail matters

From scratch resistant labels for seats to flame retardant panels and displays, printed products are vital components in the rail industry. Global supply chain issues and an ever-increasing focus on sustainability are contributing to a challenging market for the rail industry.

With the road to net zero increasing in urgency, there is a renewed focus on rail as one of the most environmentally friendly forms of transport. With this increased focus comes increased accountability, and it is becoming an expectation rather than a ‘nice to have’ that the sector thinks about its carbon footprint as a whole, rather than simply cutting emissions from the trains themselves.

Meanwhile, rising costs and global supply chain shortages are ensuring that it is becoming increasingly difficult to secure printed products. With this in mind, the rail industry is increasingly turning to UK suppliers for their printed components, helping to slim down the supply chain, save money and cut emissions.

Bex Design & Print Ltd. – Overcoming global challenges

Choosing the right partner for your printing needs can help your business to overcome a number of challenges:

  • Materials: With supplies scarce and prices soaring, slim down your supply chain and ensure swift lead times by choosing a print partner that reliably keeps materials in stock.
  • Sustainability: Reduce environmental impact by bringing your print supplier back from overseas to a UK based supplier with green credentials. Control wastage by partnering with a company that uses pre-cut materials.
  • Fire safety: Ensure your printed products are flame retardantby choosing a business that uses materials carrying the industry essential safety standard UL94 V-0 rating.
