Freightliner introduces milestone service in Felixstowe

Freightliner has launched a new service to Doncaster, in South Yorkshire, which has become Port of Felixstowe’s 30th daily rail service.

The service will bring the number of freight train movements that the port handles each day to 60, and will take around 1.75 million HGV miles off the road network each year.

Managing director of Freightliner, Adam Cunliffe, said: “The additional service to Doncaster is in response to the continued demand for quality rail services from our customers.

“Our ability to offer a complete logistics solution alongside the exciting new developments at the Port of Felixstowe have provided the basis for further rail served growth which otherwise would not have been possible.”
