DB Schenker to review British piggyback options

Customers said to be showing interest in using piggyback to help withstand the impact of the economic downturn

DB Schenker Rail (UK) Ltd is to conduct a review of options for piggyback rail freight services in Britain, following renewed interest from a number of customers in the service.

With the impact of the economic downturn forcing all users and providers of logistics services to focus hard on how costs can be reduced while enhancing service provision, DB Schenker is looking at the possible benefits of Piggyback for the British logistics market.

Stuart Boner, Managing Director of the Network segment of DB Schenker Rail (UK) Ltd, said: “In the current economic climate all options should be looked at to offer customers enhanced services. The review of Piggyback rail freight services will test the logistics market to establish demand and, subject to the results, the type of Piggyback offering DB Schenker will introduce to the market.

“We are working hard to develop innovative solutions for customers to secure road to rail conversion during the economic downturn to reduce costs and carbon emissions.”

Interested parties should contact David Cross, Sales & Marketing Manager, on david.cross@dbschenker.com

Piggyback is a dead letter in UK rail intermodal transport, due mainly to gauge constraints and a lack of interest from rail freight operators and shippers. Lafarge (formerly Blue Circle) finally shelved its plans in 2006, following an earlier series of trials supported by the then SRA using the M3 intermodal wagon.
