Rail service to link Tilbury and Grangemouth

, ,

Forth Ports in partnership with Eddie Stobart and Direct Rail Services is launching a weekend rail service linking the ports of Tilbury and Grangemouth.

The service starts on 28th June. The first train will leave Tilbury on a Friday via Daventry and travel overnight arriving into Grangemouth on a Saturday.

The wagon fleet has a capacity to travel with 36 Containers and will be managed by Eddie Stobart working with Forth Ports and DRS.

John Clark, sector director at Eddie Stobart said: “Unlike many rail operators, our services are built in direct response to customer requirements – that’s why we’re introducing a new service that will link the Port of Tilbury to Grangemouth for the first time. We believe this will help to provide our customers with a cost effective and sustainable means of moving goods between Southern England and Central Scotland.”
