Tata Steel's arrival into the UK celebrated by DB Schenker

Friday 27 September 2013

DB Schenker, Britain's leading rail logistics provider, has today, Monday 27 September, celebrated the introduction of Tata Steel as the new brand name for the former Corus business.

To commemorate the event, DB Schenker painted a powerful class 60 locomotive into the distinctive colours of Tata Steel's new corporate branding.

DB Schenker has a long association of providing value led solutions to the former Corus business, and the dedication of this locomotive shows our commitment to continue working together to help Tata Steel develop their business across Europe.

The locomotive will work on a range of rail freight services for Tata Steel, delivering products across the UK.  The locomotive was unveiled today at the Scunthorpe steel works of Tata Steel.  

Neil McDonald, Managing Director Industrial for DB Schenker, said: "DB Schenker had a long and close association with Corus and its predecessors, operating services across the UK and also in mainland Europe. We provide a range of logistics services that ensure the right steel is in the right place at the right time to keep the mills rolling. We look forward to working with Tata Steel to build an even stronger relationship and to growing our businesses together. DB Schenker wishes everyone at Tata Steel every success for the future."

Tata Steel is the new brand name for the Corus Group.  Tata Steel is Europe's second largest steel producer with annual revenues of around 12 billion GBP and crude steel production of over 20 million tonnes.  The acquisition of Corus by Tata Steel in 2007 created one of the world's largest and most geographically diverse steelmakers.  

The class 60 locomotive is the most power freight locomotive in Britain with a greater tractive effort than any other class. As such, the locomotive is important for heavy industrial customers such as Tata Steel and is a key component of the DB Schenker locomotive fleet.
