DB Schenker Rail UK announces its latest services from Britain’s newest port


The leading supplier of rail freight services to London Gateway, DB Schenker Rail UK, is extending its daily services from the port.
From the start of May, the company’s trains will be serving Manchester, Daventry, Wakefield and South Wales from London Gateway.
London Gateway is a state-of-the-art, automated new container port, offering the most efficient link between deep-sea shipping and UK markets. DB Schenker Rail UK has led the field in providing services to this major new facility from day one, notching up an impressive list of ’firsts’ on the way.
The company was the first to run a train from London Gateway, transporting a full load of containers from the ZIM Rotterdam on 24 September 2013 – an historic day for London Gateway and DB Schenker Rail UK.
DB Schenker Rail UK was the first to offer scheduled rail freight services from the new port and now serves more destinations than anyone else.
In another first, the company also integrated its IT order-management systems directly with the port’s advanced technology, offering a seamless service to customers.
This has enabled DB Schenker Rail UK to achieve an impressive ‘shore-to-door’ delivery success of 99.7% of trains on time.
As a result, DB Schenker Rail UK has cemented its position as the first choice rail freight provider from London Gateway.
Steve Pryce, Head of Marketing and Wagon Management at DB Schenker Rail UK, said: “By working closely with the port and linking our market-leading order-management system directly to the port’s own advanced systems, we can offer intermodal freight customers a smooth, efficient and rapid service. Our new daily services will build on our early successes and provide customers with an even greater range of options on more frequent trains.”
