We operated an inaugural service with Drax Power to transport Biomass and operate a fleet of bespoke wagons. This has helped to win us new customers such as Lynmouth Power. Our Biomass deliveries can move circa 115,000 tonnes per week using around 80 trains.
We also move gas condensate for the production of specialised fuels and jet fuel to Heathrow.
We also provide internal logistics solutions to the UK industry. At Celsa’s Cardiff works, we move finished, and part finished, products across their internal rail network.
Using rail to transport large volumes reduces costs, lowers the environmental impact and simplifies the process of supply chains, allowing more flexible logistics planning. Our vision for the automotive network is to expand our portfolio by supporting the automotive components industry. Using our expertise in the movement of goods to and from Europe, we are able to offer lower unit costs for our customers, on movement, the importing of automotive parts and exported vehicles.
Through contracts including those with Tarmac, Aggregate Industries, Cemex, Hanson, Breedon and Sibelco, we move circa 5 million tonnes of aggregates and sand. We also move 600,000 tonnes of cement across the UK annually.

Britain’s railway system is one of the safest and most extensively used rail networks in the world. Our exceptional safety performance has been achieved by highly competent people, by close cooperation between teams and companies, the adoption of advanced health and safety management systems and the effective application of technology.
Effective leadership is critical to delivering the opportunities outlined in this strategy and to developing the necessary management capabilities. We need to empower all employees, at all levels, to work together and deliver results more efficiently and effectively than would be possible in isolation.
