Category: non-passenger operator
Victa Railfreight holds a UK wide Operators Licence and offers localised train operations to support other freight operating companies and customers to deliver:
- Cost-effective ‘last mile’ transfers and shunting, e.g. from electrified reception point to non-electrified terminal
- Optimum use of locomotives and train crew at either end of trunk journeys for cost effective haulage solutions
- Localised shunting and feeder trip operations to assemble “aggregated traffics” originating from or destined to more than one location in a geographic area
- Integration of terminal operations with local rail infrastructure to maximise operational effectiveness and improve efficiency of the overall transport package for a wide range of commodity sectors.
Victa Railfreight’s innovative approach also offers new opportunities for the development of freight flows by rail.
