Modal Shift Programme (MSP)

We are introducing a Modal Shift Programme (MSP) at Southampton on a trial basis from 1 September 2023 - 31 August 2024, to help increase the financial attractiveness of rail for import laden containers.

A financial incentive for imports routed by rail will be paid for by a relatively small charge on all import laden containers coming through DP World Southampton. 

MSP aims to encourage supply chain partners to actively choose rail for their supply chain shipments, therefore helping cargo owners and the wider UK industry to reduce carbon emissions and achieve net zero aspirations. 

For further information, please see our customer advisory.
