TfW launches Supply Chain Platform events

Transport for Wales are launching a series of bi-monthly interactive Supply Chain Platform events alongside Business Wales to help them deliver and grow a diverse and sustainable supply chain.

Following recent news over the past few months of significant investment in Wales’ railways, such as the Welsh Government calling for backing of South Wales Main Line upgrade, Welsh railways receiving a multi-million-pound UK government investment and TfW awarding a three-year contract to Siemens Mobility as part of the Core Valley Lines Transformation programme, growing their supply chain could not be more vital.

The Supply Chain Platform events will include collaboration with potential supply chain partners and addressing topical themes that will help organisations work together and provide a platform for them to engage with and ask questions.

Each event will cover different themes with the first event, taking place on 16th September, covering guidance on how potential suppliers can demonstrate health and safety competence in their tender responses. TfW will be providing examples of where responses have failed before and offer them with some tips to help them in the future.

Subject matter experts from across Transport for Wales and Buisness Wales will be present for each event depending on the theme. Future events will include sustainability, innovation and collaboration.

Sarah Jane Waith, Transport for Wales Head of Supply Chain and Contract Management, said: “I’m delighted that we’re able to offer the opportunity for existing and potential supply chain partners to engage with us on these Supply Chain Platform events.

“These events will not only provide benefits to all parties but will ensure an engaged, well-informed supply chain who are ready for the opportunities that TfW and our partners can provide.”
