UK’s busiest inland rail freight terminal to handle 60 containers daily for CMA CGM
ABP Hams Hall, the UK’s busiest inland rail freight terminal, has begun a new service with rail freight company Freightliner to handle 60 containers per day for CMA CGM Group's Containerships subsidiary.
The new rail freight service between Liverpool and Birmingham replaces approximately 4,800 lorry miles per day, which corresponds to a daily reduction of over 12,500 kg of carbon emissions.
As the UK’s largest rail-connected ports group, with 16 of its 21 ports connected to the national rail network, ABP has a UK-wide reach, capable of handling every type of cargo, and Hams Hall is at the heart of the group, handling over 120,000 TEUs every year.
Located eight miles outside Birmingham, Ham Hall is situated adjacent to the Nuneaton-to-Birmingham railway line and handles deep-sea and short-sea traffic to and from ports, such as Southampton, Tilbury, and Felixstowe, as well as traffic from and to the Channel Tunnel and Scotland.
