Eddie Stobart, a UK-based supply chain, transport and logistics company has launched a new train service, connecting the Port of Tilbury to Tesco’s site in Daventry, and then Daventry to Mossend, Scotland. With this connection the company ships cargo move from ports in Southern England to central Scotland entirely by rail.
The first train departed on 3 September from the Port of Tilbury. With the capacity to carry between 30 and 36 containers, the service will run three days a week between the Port of Tilbury and Daventry, and twice weekly from Daventry to Mossend, according to the UK Haulier.
The trains service is currently in its testing phase, which is to last until the end of the year. If successful, the service will be regular in 2019. Eddie Stobart collaborates with the Port of Tilbury, Direct Rail Services, JF Hillebrand and Samskip in this connection.
