On 29 January 2024, GB Railfreight has started a new intermodal service, connecting London Gateway with iPort Doncaster. This will be utilising the GBRf's new FEA-G high-density twin intermodal wagons, one of which can carry six twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), significantly increasing the volume of cargo that can be transported on each journey.
GBRf will be running five trains a week from DP World London Gateway with iPort Doncaster providing a regular service between two strategically important locations for rail freight. Julie Garn, Head of Intermodal at GB Railfreight said: “We always aim to innovate our service to best meet the needs of our customers. We believe this new service will unlock a lot new markets and help us reduce our carbon emissions. Every time one of our trains runs, we remove up to 129 HGVs from our congested roads and help move us closer to net zero.”
