Independent intermodal freight forwarder Freight Systems Express Wales (FSEW), based at the South Wales International Freightliner Terminal in Wentloog, near Cardiff, says it has transported a record number of rail borne containers from Southampton Docks to the terminal in partnership with Freightliner’s Logico division.

FSEW founder Geoff Tomlinson, said: “Working closely with Logico we have been able to steadily increase our intermodal transport figures through Freightliner’s Cardiff terminal over the last few years. The flexibility and reliability of not only the rail service but also the excellent terminal operations at Cardiff, has helped us to achieve this increase and we are confident that this figure will continue to rise.”

He added: “Businesses are increasingly aware of their environmental footprint and we offer a sustainable transport solution. In the last year alone FSEW saved 545 tonnes of CO2 emissions using Logico’s services. Transporting freight by rail also has the added benefit of allowing a larger number of containers to be carried at once without the need to increase truck fleets, making the costs of moving containers by rail more competitive.”
