First Maritime Class 66s unveiled by DB Cargo


DB CARGO has signed a long-term agreement with Maritime Transport Ltd to run Maritime Intermodal, a new rail freight operation. 

The 10-year deal (from April 1) sees Maritime take over the day-to-day running of the DB’s freight terminals at Trafford Park (Manchester), Birmingham Intermodal Freight Terminal (Birch Coppice) and Wakefield Europort.

Trains will also serve the new East Midlands Gateway rail terminal under construction near Castle Donington, in Leicestershire, due to open later this year.
