Direct Rail Services has announced that has joined up with NDA Transport Subsidiaries to launch Nuclear Transport Solutions, which will start in April 2021.
The freight operator is owned by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, with Nuclear Transport Solutions expected to become the “centre of excellence” that will bring together commercial, legal and operational expertise under one roof.
Nuclear Transport Solutions will operate Direct Rail Services and Pacific Nuclear Transport Ltd, both of which will continue to operate rail and shipping services,
Dont worry – DRS will remain a known operator on the railway, with their number of freight services that operate each day.
Seth Kybird, Chief Executive of NTS, said: “We are creating NTS to become the leading global provider of safe, secure and reliable nuclear transport solutions – building on the experience and capabilities of DRS, INS and PNTL to support the NDA's important clean-up mission, and deliver great value for our customers in the UK and overseas.
“This is an exciting opportunity for us to build a vibrant and profitable organisation with an exciting and challenging mission of national and global importance.”
Chris Connelly, NTS Deputy CEO and Rail Director, said: “NTS brings together a wide variety of knowledge, skills and talent into one organisation. It's a fantastic opportunity and being part of it will make DRS stronger, more competitive and able to offer a broader range of services to our customers.”
