Many subcontractors provide services to the rail industry and we are proud to be announced as the winners in a hotly contested category. Cabfind.com’s technology has directly evolved to be the perfect logistics partner for our rail clients. Almost 60% of the total journeys we plan at Cabfind.com are directly attributed to the rail industry .”

Managing director of Cabfind.com, Chris Jordan, added:

"It has been a momentous year for cabfind.com since being acquired in February 2015 by Transdev PLC, one of the world's leading transport companies. Working under a global organisation has allowed us to make significant headway in improving our software and client experience. Being recognised for our work in the rail sector is wonderful and welcome news."
