DB Schenker Rail (UK) Ltd. Launches Second Weekly Rail Freight Service Between UK and Poland

DB Schenker Rail (UK) Ltd. has strengthened trading links between the UK and Poland with the introduction of a second weekly rail freight service between the two countries. The new service left Barking in London on October 08, 2012 at 2336 for its destination of Wroclaw in Poland, hauling a range of manufactured retail goods. Since November 2011 DB Schenker Rail has been operating one weekly rail freight service between London and Wroclaw. The introduction of the second weekly train has met increased customer demand for additional rail capacity on this trading corridor between the UK and Poland. This train has also become the second regular rail freight service to use the High Speed 1 rail route, the only European sized railway in the UK. As such, the train can be loaded with European sized curtain sided swap bodies, enabling greater volumes to be moved by rail and encouraging modal shift from road to rail.
