Freightliner expands Southampton services

To cope with increasing demand from northwest England, the company has added an extra daily service to its terminal at Manchester Trafford Park and a daily return service to Doncaster, a new destination. The Doncaster Rail Terminal, situated near Junction 2 of the M18 motorway, will serve the Doncaster area and destinations further afield in Humberside, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

Peter Maybury, managing director of Freightliner Ltd, commented: “We are delighted that our ability to launch new services in what is traditionally a lull for the deep-sea market has been met with such enthusiasm from our customers. Already a number of the wagons are contracted out on a daily basis, but we have scope left for the more speculative buyer.”
