Port of Felixstowe starts another daily rail service
The 33rd daily rail freight service has been introduced at the Port of Felixstowe. Coming just seven weeks after the introduction of the 32nd daily train, the new service is operated by GB Railfreight and runs between the Port of Felixstowe and Rotherham.
The new daily service departs from the port's North Rail Terminal which was opened in 2013. Felixstowe's North Terminal was the first in the UK built specifically to handle trains of up to 730m length. The new GB Railfreight service consists of 33 wagons, taking advantage of the greater efficiencies longer trains allow.
