new wagons

Freightliner provides coal haulage services for the UK’s leading electricity generation companies and industrial coal customers.
Since entering the coal market in December 2000, we have hauled over 165 million tonnes of coal, with services operating from import terminals, opencast sites and collieries to power stations and industrial coal customers nationwide.


Freightliner:

  • Delivers reliable equipment, careful planning and efficient communications.
  • Creates bespoke solutions to meet our customers’ requirements.
  • Offers a coordinated approach – transporting biomass, pulverised fuel ash and limestone from the FGD process for the aggregates industry.
  • Operates over 12,000 trains per year with a dedicated planning and control team based in Ferrybridge.
  • Provides direct communications from drivers and traffic control to our customers to provide real time updates.
  • Works with industry and supply chain partners to innovate and develop practices and products which increase efficiency and productivity for the customer.
  • Currently operates a fleet of 415 HHA and 219 HXA wagons, with track friendly bogies to reduce the wear and tear on rail infrastructure and cause fewer vibrations and noise issues. These state of the art coal wagons are complemented by our fleet of PowerHaul locomotives allowing us to haul longer, heavier loads with greater fuel efficiency and therefore increase network utilisation and reduce carbon emissions.
