The Office of Rail Regulation has opened a consultation on commitments proposed by Freightliner. The commitments proposal follows an ORR investigation under the Competition Act 1998 into Freightliner's arrangements with its customers for the provision of Deep Sea Container rail transport services between certain ports and key inland destinations in Great Britain. The commitments are intended to address the ORR’s concerns that Freightliner’s arrangements amount to an abuse of a dominant position by excluding access to its customers for competitors and contain resale restrictions which infringe the rules on antic-competitive agreements.
