Select Committee on Transport Written Evidence


Supplementary note by Asda Stores Ltd (FOR 106A)

THE FUTURE OF THE RAILWAYS

  Following on from our recent telephone conversations, I am pleased to be able to confirm the amount of savings that Asda Stores Ltd are making by using freight on rail.

  Our estimated annualised savings based on our current use of rail freight is £1.33 million per year.

  This saving is a combined saving from our use of two rail services. The first, from Daventry to Grangemouth. The second, from Felixstowe to Daventry.

  I hope this covers what you were looking for.
