Network Portal

About the WEAF Network Portal

The new WEAF Network Portal is an intelligent business-to-business networking platform, developed through our Innovate UK funded programme powered by Valuechain, and developed with partners Rail Midlands Forum and North East Automotive Alliance.

The WEAF Network Portal is a supply chain collaboration and intelligence platform that streamlines inter-company communication and securely captures multi-tier supply chain intelligence so that organisations can increase network competitiveness.

The new Network will position WEAF as the first regional industry association to host its cluster on this type of cross sector networking platform.

As the platform is a new system, not all members have an account yet. We will be onboarding members over the next couple of months. If you are keen to get involved please email
