A pity it is, that Industry has “missed the train”.
Upgrading (as the global devices, for added load and lower costs, etc.) should have started 30 years ago.
Low price, “state of the art”…, has proved high cost. Quality pays!
Sooner, the better, the decisive upgrading, Shift, has to come. Capacity, when added, provides for higher utilisation of assets, of staff, etc. A New Old Railway is needed, a resilent, allowing for the “new normal”, etc.
