DB Schenker will run intermodal trains from London Gateway five days per week.
Currently it operates on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, but is adding trains to Wakefield on Tuesdays and Thursdays. DB already serves the port from Trafford Park and South Wales.
Adrian Fleming, Head of Intermodal at DB Schenker Rail UK, said: “Rail freight is an attractive cog in the supply chain because it gives businesses a cost efficient and environmentally friendly solution to moving goods across the country, as well as internationally.”
