Cemex Record Volumes at Dove Holes Quarry
Updated: Mar 6
During the month of October 2019, Victa Railfreight moved a record volume of tonnage for its customer (Cemex) at Dove Holes Quarry. Victa Railfreight's local operation at the quarry was responsible for loading in excess of 269,000 tonnes in one month, which equates to approximately 3,700 loaded rail wagons. All trains were fully loaded and handed over to the mainline train haulier either on time or early.
Our customer Cemex moves limestone from Dove Holes in the Peak District to a network of 13 depots spread across the UK.
The material moved by rail is used for Road Building / Repairs, New Housing, Major Infrastructure Projects (such as HS2), Block Manufacture and by British Sugar to help refine Sugar Beet into Granulated Sugar we all use.
