The Park

Mossend International Railfreight Park (MIRP) will open up transport and logistics opportunities across Scotland, the UK, and internationally.

There are only a handful of sites in the UK with the potential for an integrated logistics hub of this scale, quality and economic significance in the UK.

For businesses and occupiers, it will facilitate access to zero-carbon supply chain logistics, as well as faster, more efficient and cost-effective movement of goods.

It also supports the Scottish Government’s rail freight strategy and its vision for a competitive rail freight sector to play an increasing role in Scotland’s economic growth.

On a regional level, it represents one of the largest investments by a private sector company ever recorded. It will:

  • Make a significant contribution to North Lanarkshire’s economy
  • Improve access and delivery times for businesses moving goods
  • Remove associated long-distance HGV traffic from the Scottish and UK road network
  • Create up to 4,900 construction and operational jobs
  • Deliver a sustainable green legacy for Bellshill and North Lanarkshire

WEC Lines have had a relationship with Peter D Stirling in Mossend for some years and have always received top class multimodal delivery services via the terminal.  The advent of the direct rail service to and from the quay at Seaforth in Liverpool has provided us with an additional and important link for our Scotland freight both import and export. The new MIRP project looks very exciting and we wish Peter D Stirling every success with this important intermodal hub for Scotland and the carbon reducing benefits.
