11 January 2022/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Logistics & Supply Chain, Ports, Maritime & Waterways, Rail


The 38th daily rail service has been introduced at Hutchison Ports Port of Felixstowe.

The new service is operated by GB Railfreight for Maritime Transport and connects the port with Birch Coppice in the Midlands.

The new service is the 15th operated by GB Railfreight and the 12th daily rail connection from the port to destinations in the Midlands.

Robert Ashton, Operations Director at the Port of Felixstowe, said: "Increasing the proportion of traffic moving by rail is an important part of our strategy to offer the widest possible range of sustainable transport options through the Port of Felixstowe.

“We are investing in new plant and equipment as part of our own drive towards net-zero and are working with partners, including GB Railfreight and Maritime Transport to help others remove carbon from their supply chains.

"With three dedicated rail terminals at the port we offer more rail services to more inland destinations with greater frequency than any other UK port."
