Railhead at Swindon
Making clean cars in the cleanest possible way also includes getting them to their final destination in the cleanest way too. That’s why we now export our cars from Swindon to Belgium using rail rather than road – helping reduce air pollution, noise and congestion.
Cleaner and faster
Since reopening the Swindon railhead in October 2007, we’ve begun taking close to 3,000 car transporter journeys off the road every year. Twice a week, 243 Honda Civics are now transported to our European Vehicle Logistics Operation in Gent, Belgium by rail – that’s around 23,000 vehicles a year.
Not only does this switch to rail help further protect the environment, but it’s also a lot faster too.
