We have recently seen our rail provider, DB Cargo deploy new higher capacity box wagons on our services. The benefits are more tonnage in the same length train and will pay dividends supplying our busy depots. We have started to see the effect of this in our March numbers.
Rob Cunningham, Supply Chain Manager commented: “We moved a record tonnage by Rail smashing our previous best month. Dove Holes performed brilliantly and our tonnage at Cardiff improved. I’m particularly proud of the growth in the Welsh element, now making up 5% of what we move with hopefully more to come – a small but important piece of the jigsaw.
Nicholas Watson, Elizabeth Dixon and I recently visited the Barking depot (which is supplied from Dove Holes and is our busiest box-wagon flow) to see the new boxes being unloaded, they certainly look the part!”
