Rail

Dedicated rail freight centres in Corby and Daventry mean the East Midlands has excellent rail links to the rest of the UK and Europe.

Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) is uniquely placed at the crossroads of the UK's trans-European transport network. It offers comprehensive, flexible freight services to all major European and domestic destinations

Eurohub, located in Corby, connects the region to national and European networks as well as providing direct access to the UK’s east-coast ports.

High-speed passenger services also make key UK and European cities extremely accessible. Business travellers can reach London in around an hour, and since 2008 Paris and Brussels are just over three hours away, thanks to the St Pancras Eurostar link.

“Our clients have commented that it’s quicker to get to us than to some other agencies across London. It's also easy to reach Manchester and Birmingham.”
