Varamis Rail launches zero carbon parcels and freight service


VARAMIS Rail has launched a new carbon-free express parcels and consumer goods freight service with the help of British infrastructure manager Network Rail and using EMUs converted by rolling stock leasing company Eversholt Rail.
The service was launched on January 9 and will run from Monday to Friday between Birmingham International station and Mossend Down Yard, near Glasgow, taking just under 5 hours each way.
The increase in online shopping and home deliveries over recent years has accelerated the demand to find a more environmentally friendly solution of moving parcels, products, or light goods around the UK.....and one solution is the electrified rail network

      On average, railroads are three to four times more fuel efficient than trucks. That means moving freight by rail instead of truck lowers greenhouse gas emissions by up to 75%, on average.

        This is a remarkable effort by Phil and his team who are passionate about removing as many dirty diesel vehicles off of our road network as possible, particularly around urban areas. A big well done.
