Victoria Group has rail connections to the national network operating from the Port of Seaham and Port of Boston, with potential for connections from Sharpness Dock and Plymouth. Around 300,000 tonnes of rail freight are handled by the Group each year. From Seaham, train loads of cement arrive regularly, whilst the Port of Boston sends a daily rail delivery of steel coil to the Group’s rail distribution centre in the West Midlands.
