MIRP welcomes announcement on Scottish green freeports

Mossend International Railfreight Park welcome the news that two green freeports are to be established in Scotland in a deal agreed between the Scottish and UK Government.

As Scotland’s largest international multi-modal rail freight park, we hope to see the huge economic benefits, employment opportunities and possibilities for redevelopment that might arise and look forward to hearing of the next steps to get these sites up and running.

For over four years now, PD Ports has operated a very successful intermodal rail freight service with direct connections from Teesport to Mossend. This route provides a simple, more cost effective and environmentally friendly route for European markets for Scotland’s imports and exports, whilst alleviating the already congested UK road network. As trade continues to grow and the requirements for more freight to be moved by rail, the new development at Mossend International Railfreight Park is both much needed and an exciting opportunity. It will play a significant role in transforming the modern supply chains into and out of Scotland and we wish the project every success.
