The Mossend EuroTerminal rail freight facility is to be leased to Maritime Intermodal from the 1st October 2021, DB Cargo UK has announced.
Two years ago, Maritime Intermodal took over the lease of the DB facilities in Trafford Park, Manchester and Wakefield in West Yorkshire.
The number of services operated by DB on behalf of Maritime has doubled from four to eight since their collaboration began back in 2019.
The Mossend EuroTerminal in Lanarkshire is situated next to the M8 motorway, which links Edinburgh and Glasgow and is well placed to transfer from road to rail.
DB Cargo UK’s Chief Executive Andrea Rossi said: “Our decision builds on the success of our existing relationship with Maritime Intermodal which has quickly established itself as a major player in the UK intermodal market.
“We look forward to maintaining our close alliance with Maritime as the industry focuses on modal shift, while delivering sustainable solutions and innovation to our customers,” he added.
John Williams, Executive Chairman, of Maritime said: “We are excited about this latest opportunity to continue to build on our fantastic relationship with DB Cargo UK as we continue to provide our customers with sustainable, complete and cost-effective transport and storage solutions across the UK.
“Demand for rail freight is rapidly increasing and we recognise the importance of investing in our terminals, plant, systems and more personnel to support our ambitions in rail as we hope to expand our network of terminals to support both ours and our customers’ growth.”
