An international rail freight operator is on scheduled to open its new Wolverhampton Logistics Centre this autumn
The £6 million project will double the size of the city’s steel rail terminal.
The current Cargo UK facility has the capability of storing and handling 1,380 steel coils. The new centre will increase this by 1,944 coils, giving a total capacity of 3,325 coils – 40,000 tonnes of steel.
The freight is transported by rail to the site, where it is then distributed to manufacturers across the West Midlands to make products including white goods and cars.
