DB Cargo UK has extended its contract with Malcolm Logistics until 2020. DB Cargo UK signed an initial three year deal with the logistics company in 2014 and it has now been agreed the partnership will continue for a further three years.

The contract, which will now run until August 2020, is worth £21M.

Each year DB Cargo UK transports around 30,000 containers for Malcolm Logistics between Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) and Scotland. Services over Mossend operate five days a week and over Grangemouth seven days a week.

The containers include cargo for a large number of high profile retailers and manufacturers and transport toys, food, beverages, electronics, etc.

It is estimated moving this cargo via rail freight saves over 13M road miles per year and it further develops a commitment to the environment through the use of rail.

Adam Baines, Intermodal Account Manager at DB Cargo UK, said: “Malcolm Logistics is one of our largest intermodal customers and we are proud our long term partnership will continue. This contract extension is testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment of everyone involved in delivering these services.

“At DB Cargo UK we strive to deliver reliable and sustainable services and put the customer at the centre of our focus making us first choice for rail freight in the UK.”

Andrew Malcolm, Chief Executive Officer at Malcolm Logistics said: “We are delighted to have extended our contract with DB Cargo UK continuing our good relationship delivering practical solutions and successful partnerships.

“Carrying freight by rail plays an important part in protecting the environment and reducing carbon emissions for us all, and providing a fast, efficient supply chain for raw materials and consumer goods while reducing pressure on the road network. “
