DB Schenker to extend London Gateway services

DB Schenker is to extend its daily services from London Gateway to Manchester, Daventry, Wakefield and South Wales from May.

Steve Pryce, head of marketing and wagon management at DB Schenker Rail UK, said: “Our new daily services will build on our early successes and provide customers with an even greater range of options on more frequent trains.”

DB Schenker Rail UK was the first to offer scheduled rail freight services from the new port, which opened in 2013.
