Important Announcement

In 2015, Freightliner joined the Genesee & Wyoming family. To reflect G&W’s brand, which has become synonymous with safety and service excellence across three continents over four decades, we are currently in the process of rebranding. We have introduced a new logo, displayed prominently in the masthead of this site, and are working to introduce the new brand throughout the business. In the meantime, photos throughout the site might include Freightliner’s previous brand. We will update the site with new photography as it becomes available.

Freightliner is an established, award winning provider of intermodal and bulk freight haulage, operating services across the entire UK rail network.

This video highlights the incredible journey Freightliner has taken since its inception in 1965 to the present day.
