The European Commission reckons Britain has the best railway in Europe and is urging other member states to adapt to the UK rail system, according to Jim Steer, the new president of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.

The statement came during Steer’s speech at the president’s inauguration lunch in London, where he set out his agenda for the next twelve months.

As well as citing his presidential priorities for the next year, he announced the EU is encouraging other members to adapt the British example in managing railways as it believes it is the best on the continent.

Steer added that his core focus this year will be the role and contribution of transport and logistics to the economy, and their vital contribution to trade, employment and competitiveness.
