RailX partners with Pledge

Tech start-up RailX has announced a partnership with Pledge, the leading accredited
carbon reporting platform for freight and logistics. The collaboration allows RailX
customers to access carbon emission data through their proprietary software and
report on ongoing road to rail savings.

Targeting the UK freight forwarder market, RailX has ambitious plans to reshape how the
logistics industry accesses rail freight services. Currently there is no single digital
platform for multiple suppliers to connect with demand. The RailX team, in
collaboration with rail freight operators, are consultatively working alongside forwarders
to support road to rail transition programmes and proactively reduce scope 3

RailX Director of Sustainability, Kelly Hobson explains; “There is a longstanding
perception that rail is an expensive and inflexible way to move freight. What we are
recognising is road is currently the preferred choice when moving freight inland
however, with a road to rail carbon reduction of up to 76% more organisations are
exploring the benefits of using rail to move a proportion of their freight. The UK
government has released a target to grow rail freight by 7.5% in the next six years and
the RailX team are committed to supporting that transition by creating easy access to
services and data.”

“Our partnership with Pledge is enabling users to immediately identify carbon savings
when exploring rail as an alternative to road. By accessing rail services via our digital
app we are allowing users to easily access the benefits of rail.”

David de Picciotto, CEO and Co-founder, Pledge added; “We’re excited to be part of
RailX’s ambitious mission to revolutionise access to rail freight. By integrating Pledge
into their platform, RailX is empowering customers with real-time carbon emissions
data and the ability to seamlessly track their emissions savings when shifting from road
to rail. This transparency is essential for businesses looking to minimise their
environmental impact, and we’re proud they’ve chosen our platform for this innovative

RailX aims to be at the forefront of an industry wide movement to progress a proportion
of road freight to rail. Their new campaign ‘Rail First’ will be launched at next month’s
Multimodal exhibition, encouraging forwarders to sign up in support of decarbonising
supply chains today.
