Roadways signs up with Schenker

[ July 10, 2013   //   ]

DB Schenker Rail UK has selected Roadways Container Logistics and its Birmingham Intermodal Freight Terminal (BIFT) as its Midland rail hub of choice. The terminal is served by two intermodal trains a day from Southampton and one from Felixstowe.

Roadways will move over 770 containers a week in and out of BIFT on behalf of DB Schenker. Marc Wynne, general manager at Roadways Container Logistics said: “Through BIFT, goods can be moved inland, closer to the delivery point ahead of booked time which then significantly reduces delays in the final and critical leg of the journey.” The three daily trains also saved 6 million truck miles a year, he added.
