GB Railfreight launches new service to Felixstowe

GB Railfreight has launched a new intermodal service from Birch Coppice to Felixstowe which initially will run 5 days a week.

The service is made up on 33 platforms. It will transport a mixture of intermodal boxes from Birch Coppice to Felixstowe, passing through Hams Hall, Leicester, Peterborough and Ipswich on the way.

“The route is also practical, with this new Midlands service meaning Birch Coppice can accommodate business that was going to Hams Hall, allowing our client Wincanton additional space for its logistics operation that is centred around the ABP facility,” said GB Railfreight managing director John Smith.
