Two years for Teesport rail hub

[ November 21, 2016   //   ]

Teesport is celebrating the second anniversary of the opening of its Intermodal Rail Terminal in 2014.
The hub enjoys regular Freightliner trains to and from Felixstowe and Southampton by Freightliner and services to Mossend and Grangemouth by DB Cargo UK.
PD Ports’ business development director, Geoff Lippitt, said: “We are nearing capacity on most routes supported by customers using the portcentric logistics model and boosted by this success there are plans to establish further routes to the Midlands and the North West in line with market demand.
“We’ve successfully built a strong rail operation at Teesport and there is a clear appetite for increased frequency of services but as an industry we still face significant challenges that could potentially hold back future progress if existing issues of inadequate UK rail infrastructure and limited capacity aren’t tackled.
“We are committed to continuing our work with the likes of Transport for North, Department for Transport and Network Rail to tackle these issues.”
