DB Cargo UK steels itself for new business

DB Cargo (UK) Ltd has successfully trialled a new service for new-to-rail customer Marcegaglia, transporting almost 3,000 tonnes of steel coil from the Port of Sunderland to its steel logistics centre in Wolverhampton.

Marcegaglia is the largest independent global operator in the steel processing industry and the largest precision tube manufacturer in Great Britain, with facilities in Dudley in the West Midlands and Rotherham in South Yorkshire.

The service, which has run twice during June, removed the need for more than 120 HGV movements, thereby reducing congestion on the UK road network and carbon emissions.

The two trains were the first commercial freight trains to be loaded in the Port of Sunderland for more than 20 years, making it an extra special success!

DB’s Head of Sales Roger Neary said: “Marcegaglia is a prestigious addition to DB’s portfolio of customers in the steel sector and further strengthens our reputation as the biggest mover of metal products in the UK.”
