GB RAILFREIGHT has won a three-year contract extension with Mediterranean Shipping Company for container services out of the Port of Felixstowe.

GBRf first ran services for MSC in 2002, and now operates three daily services, one to Newell & Wright in Rotherham and two to ABP Connect in Hucknall. The new deal will see the operator run 98 rail platforms daily, a mix of 60-foot FEA wagons and 40-foot Ecofret triples.
