Direct access to multiple modes of freight transport provides logistics, warehousing and distribution companies with the flexibility required to optimise logistics planning on an ongoing basis. This enables businesses to minimise costs, lead times, inventories and environmental impact.
Through recent and forthcoming multi-million pound investments in large-scale freight terminals, Doncaster is emerging as one of the UK’s leading multimodal freight hubs, providing logistics companies with multiple, ‘future-proofed’ freight transport solutions.
Doncaster’s established freight terminals include Doncaster Sheffield Airport and Doncaster International Railport, with the Humber sea ports accessible in less than 1 hour. These assets will soon be complemented by the £300m iPort Doncaster Logistics Park and Strategic Rail Freight Terminal. From early 2016, Doncaster’s world-class freight-handling facilities will be connected by the £56m Great Yorkshire Way, creating a unique multimodal proposition with transport times of just a few minutes between terminals.

Consultation on the future of transport across the Sheffield City Region (SCR) is set to go live next Monday, 8 January.
An online questionnaire, running until the end of March, will give people across the region the chance to have their say on the SCR’s ambitious draft Transport Strategy. The strategy aims to grow the regional economy by £500million, boosting economic growth by making it easier for people, particularly those in the most deprived areas, to get to work or places of education.
