DB Cargo UK, a leading British rail freight operator, has extended its contract with Malcolm Logistics until 2020.
DB Cargo UK signed an initial three-year deal in 2014 and this week it has 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 from Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) to Scotland. Services to Mossend operate five days a week and to Grangemouth seven days a week.
The containers include cargo for a large number of high profile retailers and manufacturers and transport toys, food, beverages and electronics to name a few.
It is estimated moving this cargo via rail freight is saving over 13m road miles per year.
