GB Railfreight has signed an agreement to manage the movements and preparations of all the trains in and out of the DP World London Gateway Port.
The rail freight company’s contract will last for three years.
GB Railfreight began working at the deep-sea container port on March 17, 2017, and has now expanded its presence, employing eight employees in the process.
The firm said that the deal is a “significant development” as part of its ambition to develop safe and reliable rail transport at the port.
GB Railfreight managing director and founder John Smith said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to develop our services in London and ensure that the economy continues to function effectively.
“We hope to continue to build on this relationship and ensure that passengers receive the optimum service.”
