Eddie Stobart extends UK rail services
22 January 2019
Eddie Stobart Logistics (ESL) has launched a new rail service from the Port of Tilbury to Daventry – the only rail operation from the port for inbound traffic – with a forecast capacity of 200 containers a week.
The move is part of its ongoing strategy to provide exceptional flexibility and resilience for customer supply chains.
“Eddie Stobart Logistics works with some of the biggest import and retail customers operating in the UK, and their priority is to ensure the reliability and adaptability of their supply chains whatever circumstances they face in the future,” says John Clark, sector director for ESL.
Within a matter of weeks the Tilbury to Daventry route will have expanded to run daily Monday to Friday, and ESL also plans to have a weekly service linking to its operations in Widnes, Cheshire.
