January 2019 FreightArranger’s F3 intermodal service is designed to operate within an FMCG environment and support a less than 24 hour pick to delivery requirement.
The F3 Project has successfully scheduled existing FMCG freight flows into a 24 hour train operating plan which meets shippers’ delivery requirements and maximises train running time.
To achieve this, trains shuttle between mini rail freight terminals which are in close proximity to freight origins and destinations. Through intensive train use and rapid turnaround in terminals, F3 trains are able to achieve up to 6 sectors per day. This capability enables FreightArranger’s service to be dovetailed seamlessly into existing delivery timings.
