Doncaster’s iPort terminal is top rail freight firm

[ September 11, 2020   //   ]

Doncaster’s iPort Rail terminal has won ‘Business of the Year’ at the Rail Freight Group’s annual excellence awards event for its “outstanding vision for the future” of the sector.

Judges said: “iPort Rail has spent years planning and investing heavily to build the first inland rail freight terminal to be open and operational for a decade. Now, as well as attracting six daily intermodal services from around the country, it has also proved that medium-distance rail flows are viable. In fact, this business has actually been instrumental in helping some of the rail freight flows cited in other award entries. The judges were impressed by this business taking a vision for the future and then doing everything needed to implement it.”

The awards were presented by the event sponsors and presenters on the night John Smith, managing director of GB Railfreight and Simon Coppen of law firm Burges Salmon.
