Vehicles transported by rail through Channel Tunnel for first time in five years


Through its subsidiary GB Railfreight, Groupe Eurotunnel has resumed transporting cars through the Channel Tunnel for the first time in five years.

On behalf of STVA, a finished vehicle logistics provider, GB Railfreight will operate one vehicle train per week. The cars will be moved from Portbury, Bristol, UK to Ghent, Belgium, exclusively by rail, on three different trains.

Each train will have nine double-deck STVA wagons, which are specifically designed to transport vehicles. Each wagon can carry 24 cars, with each train transporting 216 cars a week.
