The rail terminal at the Port of Southampton efficiently handles some 1,800 rail services annually, transferring approximately 80,000 import and export containers between DP World Southampton and rail terminals nationwide.
The terminal currently handles 7 intermodal container trains each day, serving locations across the Midlands and the North of England, with capacity to handle 180,000 containers per year.
The Terminal opened in May 2017 following an extensive £5 million infrastructure and equipment upgrade carried out in partnership between Solent Stevedores and Port owners, Associated British Ports. The result was a vastly improved service offering to the industry, with train turnaround times more than halved – from 4 hours to 90 minutes. This achievement was recognised in the RFG ‘Project of the Year’ award.
In May 2019, a further £1 million infrastructure investment was completed, upgrading and lengthening the terminal’s sidings and points, which now enables two 645m container trains to be worked on simultaneously
The Terminal currently handles 7 intermodal services each day between Monday to Saturday
