Thamesport (London) Limited celebrated a new record for the number of containers handled by its rail terminal in October. It handled a total of 6,007 units, breaking its previous record of 5,411, set in October 1999. These figures represented a rail modal share for Thamesport of 23.6% and, says the Port, highlight its dedication to transporting as many containers by rail as possible.

Chris Lewis, CEO of Hutchison Ports (UK) Limited, which owns Thamesport, commented: “These record-breaking volumes are excellent news. They have come at a time when Thamesport is experiencing constantly increasing volumes of trade, and is welcoming new and returning services. Breaking the 6,000 teu barrier is a testament to the hard work of the Port’s employees, and the recent levels of investment in our facilities.”
