The Maritime terminal is located within the port and utilises the highly efficient sprinter straddle carriers operated by DP World. It handles in excess of 290,000 containers a year.
In 2012, the year which also saw Freightliner’s 40th anniversary of operations in Southampton, a £9M terminal enhancement scheme was implemented. Two Liebherr rail mounted gantry cranes were erected and groundwork improvements made to enable a 14 lane span compared to the seven lanes that previously existed.
From Southampton, Freightliner offers several weekend services in addition to the daily routings between Birmingham, Cardiff, Teesport, Coatbridge, Daventry, Ditton, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester. Freightliner Southampton runs 15 trains daily and in excess of 430 wagons each way per day.
All key destinations have more than one daily service, ensuring flexibility for our customers.
Every Freightliner site has 24 hour security including CCTV.
