SEGRO has chosen a company to operate its Strategic Rail Freight Interchange (SRFI) at its East Midlands Gateway development.

Maritime Transport will base its UK headquarters at the 22.5 acre rail terminal which will be capable of handling up to sixteen 775m-long freight trains daily and will provide storage capacity for over 5,000 TEU (the measurement of capacity of container terminals) – which is equal to approximately 55,000 pallets of cargo.

A 20,000 sq ft office will become the Rail Headquarters under the Maritime Intermodal division and will house operations staff, training facilities and parking for a fleet of up to 100 trucks. Completion of the rail freight terminal is expected in late 2019 and the office element in Summer 2020.

This is the first rail freight interchange in the East Midlands and will connect to the Castle Donnington freight line, providing direct access to the UK's network of Rail Freight Interchanges and all major UK Ports.
