Direct Rail Services Class 68 and ship

UK: The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority has brought together its transport subsidiaries including Direct Rail Services into a single Nuclear Transport Solutions division.

NDA said NTS would be a centre of excellence for nuclear logistics, supporting its work to clean up UK civil nuclear sites and using its ‘world-leading’ expertise to provide commercial services in the UK and abroad including transport activities for customers outside the nuclear sector.

DRS will continue to manage the division’s rail operations, with Pacific Nuclear Transport providing martime services.

‘NTS brings together a wide variety of knowledge, skills and talent into one organisation’, said Chris Connelly, NTS Deputy CEO & Rail Director. ‘It’s a fantastic opportunity and being part of it will make DRS stronger, more competitive and able to offer a broader range of services to our customers.’
