DB Schenker Rail (UK) Ltd. Launches Second Weekly Rail Freight Service Between UK and Poland
Oct 9 12
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.

The agreement will see DB Schenker Rail introduce at least four rail freight services a day (four in, four out), subject to volumes, and will serve a range of inland terminals including potential new UK locations. Additional rail freight services will be introduced in the future. DB Schenker Rail will also pursue the development of rail freight services from London Gateway to mainland Europe using the Channel Tunnel.
