Join Welfare Hire at Rail Live 2024

After the success of last year’s visit, we are thrilled to be joining more than 270 industry suppliers to showcase our range of innovative welfare products at this year’s Rail Live.

The event will be held on 19-20th June at Porterbrook’s Long Marston Rail Innovation Centre – and we are excited to connect with more than 6,000 forward-thinking rail industry professionals.


What Can Welfare Hire Bring to the Rail Industry?

Rail is the UK’s most sustainable long-distance transport industry – responsible for just 1.6% of the nation’s transport carbon. But the Sustainable Rail Blueprint, published last November, aims for more than just net zero. Instead, it declares that the industry must improve its impact on local communities and society at large – which is where Welfare Hire’s solutions come in. 

Not only do our products produce measurable reductions to the carbon footprint of any rail project: they also help reduce noise pollution, support employee mental health initiatives and avoid water waste.

The result? Rail projects can continue to cut carbon emissions while making wider improvements to their social and local impact.



Want to Join Us At Rail Live 2024?

Our team will be at Stand G1 – and you can book tickets for the event today:
