Fruitful business for DB Schenker

[ July 16, 2015   //   ]

DB Schenker Rail UK has secured a contract with the direct sourcing arm of Asda Walmart, International Procurement and Logistics (IPL) to transport produce containers from London Gateway to Wakefield Europort. The UK’s rail freight operator will be providing two services a week for IPL. The first service delivered sixteen containers of bananas that had arrived from Costa Rica into the container port. Previously, the containers would have been moved to IPL’s distribution centre at Ackton by road.
