OUR RAIL ADVANTAGE. YOUR RAIL ADVANTAGE

A million TEU of container traffic are moved annually through the three rail terminals at Felixstowe. This saves over 100 million HGV miles each year, reducing road congestion and improving environmental performance.

Rail volumes account for around 29% of the port’s total UK domestic throughput, rising to 50% of traffic to the North and West Midlands.
