GB Railfreight boosts London freight business with DP World contract

GB Railfreight has announced that it has signed a 3-year contract to manage the movements and preparation of all trains running in and out of the DP World London Gateway Port.

GB Railfreight commenced operations at DP World London Gateway on the 17th March 2017 and under the contract has expanded its presence at the port, adding eight employees who were previously working at the Port for the former operator.

This contract is a significant development for GBRf and its ambition to support DP World to develop volume and a reliable, safe rail operation. GBRf welcomes the opportunity to continue working with DP World and its customers to streamline processes and create a positive rail experience for all at the Port.

John Smith, Managing Director of GB Railfreight, said:

“GB Railfreight is delighted to announce that it will be supporting DP World in the smooth operations of its London Gateway facility. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop our services in London and ensure that the economy continues to function effectively. Additionally, that efforts to lower air pollution through the reduction of lorries on the capital’s roads are successful. We hope to continue to build on this relationship and ensure that passengers receive the optimum service.”
