DB Schenker takes over in Telford

[ February 5, 2013   //   ]

DB Schenker Rail has formally taken over as the new operator of the Telford International Railfreight Park. The terminal, opened in June 2009 and with a capacity of up to four trains a day, was initially funded by a combination of Telford & Wrekin Council, Advantage West Midlands, the Homes and Communities Agency and the European Regional Development Fund. However, it struggled commercially and an alternative operator was sought. DB Schenker Rail has been appointed after a formal EU Procurement process.
