Rail Freight

Russell have been pioneering the use of rail freight for over 45 years, operating intermodal services and rail connected terminals across the UK.

The Group's 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 = Aberdeen

These terminals, alongside the 3rd party terminals in use, provide our customers with national coverage.

Russell Group are pleased to announce the successful acquisition of the Coatbridge Rail Terminal from Freightliner. Located directly adjacent to the existing Russell Group Coatbridge operation in Scotland, the acquisition marks a significant milestone in our company's growth and expansion plan. It gives rise to a new trading entity, Russell RailRoad Limited, dedicated to driving innovative rail freight solutions and fostering stronger collaboration within the Group.

The expansion of Russell Group's operations will bring numerous benefits to stakeholders across the board. For employees, the growth of the company presents new career opportunities and avenues for professional development through the expansion of our operations and the diversification of services offered. Customers, meanwhile, will enjoy an enhanced logistics experience with the integration of multimodal solutions, improved connectivity, and faster delivery times. Additionally, the shift towards rail freight will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, aligning with Russell Group's commitment to achieve NetZero by 2040.
