Rail Freight

Rail Freight

Russell have been pioneering the use of rail freight for over 40 years. With 6 UK rail freight terminals in operation, Russell provides high value solutions across the UK and Europe.

Due to rail's environmental benefits, many manufacturers and retailers are keen to develop their use of rail freight throughout the UK and Europe. Russell promote and encourage, where viable and sustainable, the transfer of freight from road to rail.

However, Rail cannot operate in isolation from other transport modes, therefore, all Russell rail linked depots are road connected with an on-site distribution fleet enabling the smooth transfer of goods for onward delivery.

Russell's rail linked sites include Daventry, Edinburgh (Leith), Glasgow (Hillington), Coatbridge, Inverness, and Aberdeen. These terminals, alongside the 3rd party terminals in use, provide our customers with national coverage.
