DB Cargo extends Cornish clay train contract

DB Cargo UK has won a new two-year deal to continue running clay trains in Cornwall for Imerys.

DBC runs two separate flows for the company, from Goonbarrow to Fowey and from Cornwall to Cliffe Vale in Stoke. Every week around 2,500 tonnes of clay is moved by rail, equivalent to 11,000 lorries per year being removed from Cornish roads.

Britain’s largest freight company is now also moving 50,000 tonnes of steel a week to docks in South Wales, with more than 30 trains a week serving Newport and Bridgeport Docks for Tata Steel.
