It will run to and from the Freightliner rail port at Doncaster when development work is completed. It will temporarily be serviced at the DB Cargo site in Rotherham.

“This new Freightliner service will create much needed additional rail freight capacity to meet the growing demands of customers who are looking for a faster, greener, safer and more efficient means of transporting freight over land,” said Adam Cunliffe, managing director, Freightliner Ltd. “It is also another milestone in the Port of Felixstowe’s strategy to increase freight on rail, not only by running additional services, but by lengthening the existing trains.”
