GB Railfreight has today announced a two year deal with A.P. Moller – Maersk for a new train service.
The service will operate from Felixstowe to Newell, and Wright in Tinsley, and will consist of daily trains, five times a week.
This new service will incorporate five new eco-fret 2 wagons which we have recently procured from VTG.
The partnership will see GBRf operating from a new terminal, in Tinsley, however, is a continuation of a longstanding relationship with Newell & Wright, whom GBRf have long worked with.
Jeremy Haycock, Managing Director UK and Ireland at Maersk said: “Maersk´s ultimate aim is offering our customers reliable options that streamline their supply chains. As a provider of logistic services, rail is key for us to increase supply chain flexibility for our customers. We will continue to strength our reliability in the UK and for that matter, the relationship with GBRf and Newell & Wright has proven to be of paramount importance.”
