Freightliner’s single largest contracted user


FSEW has been working with Freightliner since 2006 offering customers a quick, efficient, environmentally-friendly freight option. The service has proved so popular over the last 12 years that, as well as increasing its capacity on the Cardiff-Southampton route, FSEW is also able to offer customers rail freight services to Birmingham and Daventry.

Increased rail capacity

By increasing its rail capacity, FSEW is able to transport freight straight out of Southampton port, into and out of South Wales, using Freightliner’s extensive rail services, providing a more efficient and reliable service to customers.

FSEW is Freightliner’s single largest contracted user on the Southampton to Cardiff route, railing, on average, 800 containers a month.

Reducing delays

 “With the potential delays on the M4 relief road, there is no better time for companies to consider rail freight as an option. As a result of this agreement with Freightliner, FSEW is already seeing an increase in business and enquiries as manufacturers and importers experience significant delivery delays with their current transport providers.”

Geoff Tomlinson, Managing Director of FSEW 

“We’ve worked closely with Geoff and FSEW for over a decade and in that time have built up a strong, mutually beneficial working relationship. Hauliers and freight forwarders are increasingly seeing the value of offering their clients a rail alternative, and FSEW and Freightliner have been at the forefront of making that a viable option.”
