A Selby based logistics firm will now be able to welcome some of the longest freight trains in the country following the opening of its upgraded rail terminal.
The logistics company which is located on the Barlby banks of the River Ouse, celebrated the completion of its new rail head project with an opening ceremony on July 24th. The project, an extension to its existing terminal, has increased the length of its head shunt area from 468 metres to 775 metres.
Completion of the project means that now, for the first time, they will be able to receive a daily freight train from ports in Felixstowe into the Selby terminal. The first train is expected to stop later in 2014.
