Quality, matters! (“JIT”, etc.)
As short of all vitals, at all supply chains: redundancy, resilency and robustness, simply any risk of a risk, adds to costs of clients now relying upon service rendered by railway cargo.
Regrettably infrastructure of railways, devastatingly vulnerable, as stuck at standards since long not optimal, now has turned Bottleneck, simply by not withstanding, neither current traffic, nor speed.
For sake of railways, of all…, bottlenecks of railways have to be outed!
