EWS Network, the logistics rail provider, has been contracted to provide two mail trains a day for the Royal Mail over the next fortnight.
The ten van train will operate from the Royal Mail’s Princess Royal Distribution Centre in London, and then call at Warrington and Shieldmuir, just outside Glasgow. The train will then work a return service from Shieldmuir via Warrington to Prnicess Royal.
Stuart Boner, EWS Network Managing Director, said: “Royal Mail is a multi-modal logistics user and at their busiest time of the year they require additional resources from all modes. EWS Network is delighted to provide a rail solution that can be integrated into their plan, and looks forward to transporting mail in the days leading up to Christmas.”
