GB Railfreight announces two-year deal with Puma Energy

GB Railfreight (GBRf), the third largest rail freight operator in the UK, today announced it has signed two-year deal with extension options with global energy company Puma Energy to run fuels services from Interterminals, Immingham East.

From December GBRf will be providing a hook and haul service going to Bedworth, near Coventry and Theale, near Reading.

The deal is evidence of GBRf’s continuing growth in the rail freight industry. It follows the company’s recent investment in wagons to service a contract extension with Sibelco Europe as well as securing a five-year contract with Belmond Royal Scotsman.

GBRf operates over 1,000 trainloads a week, moving 15% of UK’s rail freight.

John Smith, Managing Director of GBRf, said:
“We are pleased to announce this new deal with Puma Energy to support the delivery of fuels from on the terminal at Immingham docks. We’ve grown extensively over the past few years, driven by a number of factors including strong relationships with leading companies like PUMA.

Roy Brooke, Puma Energy UK General Manager at Puma Energy added: “Puma Energy UK are pleased to be working with GBRf to supply quality, competitively priced fuels to their inland terminals from a new supply location at Interterminals, Immingham East.

“This new supply route will help increase supply capacity and support further growth in the UK market. GBRf have been chosen as a key partner for this activity, bringing a wealth of expertise in rail logistics and a “can do” attitude to match that of Puma Energy.”
