Shannon Rail Services Limited was incorporated in 2002 initially to provide site access control solutions to principal contractors working on Network Rail and London Underground Infrastructure.
The portfolio has since widened to include site welfare, minibuses, and road haulage. The company is also a fully accredited provider for rail training, medicals, and alcohol & drugs screening.
Shannon Rail Services is possibly unique in the UK in being able to provide integrated solutions that include site access control (with an electronic web-based time & attendance system), full site set-ups, workforce transportation and materials logistics. This capability has enabled the company to grow significantly in recent years.
The main operating base is located in Watford adjacent to the Network Rail depot. A northern office was opened in Doncaster in 2018.
The company is committed to collaborative working with industry partners to encourage innovation and sustainability, and promote a positive safety culture.
