Rail link to Scotland

[ October 4, 2011   //   ]

Malcolm Rail, a division of logistics provider the Malcolm Group, has launched a new rail service between PD Ports’ Teesport and Scotland. The new service is operated by Direct Rail Services and runs between Teesport’s container terminal and Malcolm Rail’s multimodal terminals in Grangemouth, Scotland’s busiest container port, and to Elderslie near Glasgow.

The service was primarily set up to cater for the spirits trade but also carries other cargo. It currently runs once a week, but Malcolm Rail aims to ramp the service up to five days a week.

The service also links into Malcolm Rail’s other 60 train services per week from six terminals nationwide.
