More rail freight services between Poland and the UK
10 Feb 2012 ⋅ by A. Samuel ⋅

DB Schenker Rail said it is introducing a second weekly service between Poland and the UK this September.

The freight operator said it is also looking to introduce up to five trains per week running between the two countries in 2013.

The additional train service, which operates from Wroclaw in Poland to Barking near London in the UK, will remove 3,700 lorry movements and over 135,000 lorry kms per annum from Europe’s road network.

Alexander Hedderich, Chief Executive of DB Schenker Rail, said:

“DB Schenker Rail is a pan-European rail freight operator and the strengthening of our services between Poland and the UK clearly illustrates the success our strategy for European rail freight growth is having.

“Through effective trading corridors such as this one we are able to provide customers with the economic and environmental solutions that enable their use of rail freight to increase.”
