P&O Ferries has announced the doubling of its rail capacity at Europoort with the launch of a second line into its terminal at the continental hub.
The 650m long track will complement P&O's existing rail line and means that the integrated ferry and logistics company can handle up to four trains of either 36 trailers or 42 x 45 foot containers a day, comprising eight services to and from locations across Europe.
Janette Bell, chief executive of P&O Ferries, said, "To connect with the United Kingdom market, we provide three sailings a week to Teesport and seven sailings a week to Hull, with a commitment to providing customers with the most reliable and cost efficient service possible."
Moreover, P&O Ferrirs and P&O Ferrymasters plans to expand its rail network into new regions. The second rail line at Europoort is expected to handle fast moving consumer goods from across Europe as well as automotive parts and products en route to the North-East of England.
