CASE STUDY MSC

GBRf runs three daily container services for MSC UK from the Port of Felixstowe: two to Hams Hall in the West Midlands and one to Selby in North Yorkshire.

In December 2013, the companies reached an agreement to extend the contract by another three years, taking effect from February 2014.

While the frequency of the operations remains the same, the extension includes a new agreement that will see additional capacity added to the current trains, allowing them to carry an additional 54 containers per day, on average.

Last year, GBRf celebrated its 10-year partnership with MSC UK by naming a Class 66 locomotive ‘Sorrento’, after the hometown of MSC founder, Mr Aponte.
