DB Schenker Rail UK goes for BIFT

DB Schenker Rail UK has selected Roadways Container Logistics and its Birmingham Intermodal Freight Terminal as its Midland rail hub.

This has resulted in more than 770 containers a week moving in and out of BIFT on behalf of  the rail freight firm, with intermodal services including two trains from Southampton and one from Felixstowe, now arriving daily into the terminal.

Carsten Hinne, managing director, Logistics for DB Schenker Rail UK said: “The results from the first few months of operations have been very encouraging and the refinement of services allows DB Schenker Rail UK to offer our customers better use of assets and improvements in operational performance.”
