New freight train

DB Schenker Rail UK and PD Ports have launched their first rail freight service from Teesport in Middlesbrough to Mossend and Grangemouth in Scotland.

Starting on 3 August service will offer a full train with 40 containers to and from Scotland each day – Monday to Friday.

Says Geoff Lippitt, PD Ports’ business development director, ‘We are delighted to see the commencement of the first daily train service connecting Teesport to Scotland, further enhancing our position as the Northern Gateway for containerised goods destined for the north of the UK.

‘This new service truly demonstrates how this type of collaboration can prove highly effective and deliver real benefits for shipping lines and intermodal customers from both a commercial and environmental perspective.’
