Tibbett Logistics intermodal plan

Tibbett Logistics, the Romanian subsidiary of Keswick Enterprises, has taken delivery of its first 32 intermodal rail wagons from the French company Touax.

Initially the wagons will be used on Tibbett’s own block trains operating from the port of Constanta on the Black Sea, but the company also has plans to acquire additional rail wagons early in 2012 to provide sufficient capacity for daily services and to create a link between Bucharest and the west of Romania.

Tibbett chief David Goldsborough said: “We have recently seen increased interest in – and demand for – intermodal/road-rail logistics solutions, while at the same time the availability of rail wagons on the Romanian market has decreased due to the age and general poor state of repair of the rolling stock.  For this reason, we have taken the unusual step of long-term leasing our own rail wagons.”
