Schenker Rail to connect Teesport to Scotland

DB Schenker Rail UK is to run a direct daily service (Monday to Friday) from PD Ports owned Teesport in Middlesbrough to Mossend and Grangemouth in Scotland, with the service set to commence in August.

The service will transport containerised traffic.

Geoff Lippitt, PD Ports’ business development director, said: “The recent investment in a dedicated rail terminal at Teesport is part of PD Ports’ wider growth strategy to position the Port as the Northern Gateway for containerised goods destined for the north of the UK. In the last three years we have seen the implementation of a new terminal operating system, the arrival of new RTG cranes and reach stackers as well as significant investment in yard infrastructure.”
