Rail Freight and Mineral Products working together to build Britain

The rail freight of aggregates, cement and other mineral products is a national sustainability success story. Over the last five years the rail freight tonnage of these materials has increased by 21% and is now the largest user of the rail freight network in terms of tonnes carried. This ensures that construction demands are met while carbon emissions and road congestion are reduced. 

The top five aggregates and mineral products moved by train are limestone; hardstones such as basalt, granite, gritstone; cement; sand; marine dredged aggregates.
