QUALITY FREIGHT INVESTS IN RAIL FACILITY
Quality Freight Group has invested almost £300,000 in a new Fuchs crane at its Ellesmere Port facility.
The Fuchs MHL 360E will operate at the company’s rail head which currently handles more than 200,000 tonnes a year.
The rail head was reopened in 2011 in conjunction with partner Peel Ports. It can handle both inbound and outbound cargoes and all types of cargo including bulk, container and FMCG. We are able to feed into the national and European rail network through our relationships with major rail operators.
The crane announcement coincides with the news that Quinn Glass – which produces glass containers for the food and beverage industry - has renewed its contract with Quality Freight for the handling, storage and delivery of silica sand.
The product is delivered by rail into Quality Freight’s Ellesmere Port terminal before transfer to Quinn’s bottle manufacturing and filling operation in Cheshire by our dedicated transport fleet.
Sebastian Gardiner, Managing Director of Quality Freight UK, said: “The rail head has been a huge success since it was reopened in 2011 and the investment in the new Fuchs crane will further enhance its capability and flexibility.
“It is all part of our strategy of providing our customers with a dynamic, highly
professional multi-modal facility at Ellesmere Port.”
