CASE STUDY – South Humber Rail Gauge Enhancements  PHOTOS – South Humber Rail Gauge Enhancements

By around 2020 more than 50% of containers arriving at our UK ports will be on ‘high cube’ containers. We are currently not able to transport them out of the South Humber ports, where our rail infrastructure only supports standard containers.

‘High cube’ containers are 9’6” in measurement and therefore limitations currently involve height & width restrictions to bridges, tunnels, platforms & other structures.
