Stobart Rail's chilled Valencia - London train runs regular weekly services covering the six-month Spanish harvest season, offering customers an environmentally responsible rail freight solution. 

Environmentally Responsible

Rail Freight offers a more environmentally friendly transport solution, reducing the need for road haulage and cutting CO2 emissions 

Individually Controlled Containers

Each container is individually temperature controlled and monitored using the latest satellite technology, ensuring the product arrives in exceptional condition

Spain to UK - Door to Door

The rail services depart Spain throughout the week and travel through Spain and France to the Channel Tunnel. On passing through the Channel Tunnel the train runs on High Speed 1 all the way to the London terminal at Barking. From here, the containers are lifted to skeletal trailers and are delivered to customer sites across the UK.
