Freightliner Coatbridge Terminal

Freightliner’s Coatbridge Terminal is located on the Motherwell to Inverness main line situated between Edinburgh and Glasgow. This pivotal location means it is a natural hub for intra-Scotland rail moves, further enhanced by its location close to major Regional Distribution Centres (RDC), key Scottish exporters and principal road haulage hubs.
Our Coatbridge Terminal has eight rail sidings with six rails under the cranes. There are two rail areas, each with three rail sidings and served by two overhead gantry cranes. The additional two rail sidings accommodate shunting and hold repair wagons. All rail sidings have Alternating Current (AC) electric overhead line access.
