iPort Rail, the UK’s newest intermodal inland rail freight hub in Doncaster, is now fully operational.
Set to change the regional and national intermodal landscape, especially around Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Humberside and the M62 corridor, iPort Rail was fully connected to the national rail network in December 2017, with the signalling now also complete.
It connects to the national rail network from the South Yorkshire Joint Line, to the west of Doncaster, on the freight only line which goes on to Maltby and Worksop. The site is also close to St Catherine’s loop, adjacent to the East Coast Main Line and the gauge cleared connectivity, which the ECML offers both North and South.
Steve Freeman, Managing Director of iPort Rail, said: “We’re all very excited that iPort Rail is now up and running and able to take trains. The connectivity and quality of facility we’re providing is genuinely unique, and businesses taking space here can take advantage of the major benefits that better access to rail freight offers.”
