The intermodal Maritime Transport rail freight terminal connects SLPEMG directly to the Castle Donington freight line. This provides direct access to the UK’s network of RFIs as well as major UK ports such as Southampton, Felixstowe, London Gateway and the Channel Tunnel.

Works comprised the construction of two additional railway tracks along with container storage and lorry parking hard standings, earthworks, landscaping and drainage.

The 50-acre intermodal rail freight terminal operates 24/7 and is able to accommodate up to 16,775m freight trains per day. It is also able to provide storage capacity for over 5,000 TEU (the measurement of capacity of container terminals) which is equal to approximately 45,000 pallets of cargo.
