Eurotunnel wins the 2012 Deutsche Bahn award for Best Supplier at Innotrans, Berlin

The Best Supplier prize, awarded by Deutsche Bahn recognises the best overall performance of an infrastructure or rolling stock specialist.

This award from Deutsche Bahn, which collaborates with almost 35,000 suppliers across the world, underlines the commitment by Eurotunnel to deliver a reliable and environmentally friendly Freight Shuttle service to its customers. With the high frequency of departures between Calais and Folkestone and the rapid transit time (just 35 minutes), Eurotunnel’s Shuttles provide a highly competitive service for customers, enabling them to save up to 2 hours per trip. Eurotunnel is the first French company in the Transport and Logistics sector to be awarded the prestigious “Best Supplier” prize.

Dr Rüdiger Grube, Chairman of Deutsche Bahn stated:

Eurotunnel’s Freight Shuttles have earned this prize for their speed, ease of use and the safety with which they enable haulers to make deliveries between the Continent and Great Britain and back. Eurotunnel is the most environmentally friendly cross-Channel operator, helping Deutsche Bahn to reducing the carbon footprint.


Jacques Gounon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Groupe Eurotunnel SA, stated:

I am proud to see that Eurotunnel’s commitment to the quality of its service has been recognised by a railway operator of the reputation of Deutsche Bahn. Operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year is proof of the constant attention we bring to our customers’ needs, and a measure of our competitive edge. This will encourage us to continue along our path.
