Nuclear Transport Solutions

We are specialists in the operational, commercial, engineering, legal and regulatory expertise that underpin nuclear transport and logistics operations.

We operate Direct Rail Services (DRS) and Pacific Nuclear Transport Limited (PNTL) who have decades of experience of providing safe, secure and reliable transport solutions.

We use our world-leading expertise to deliver commercial activities for a range of customers in the UK and overseas. For example, our unique high security shipping capabilities support UK and global security goals, with the aim of making the world a safer place.

NTS also works for customers outside the nuclear sector. For example, we operate a number of intermodal rail freight services in consumer goods and general freight markets. Undertaking this work ensures our capabilities and assets are maintained and enhanced, and generates additional revenue to support the NDA’s mission.

We employ 750 people at locations throughout the UK, as well as in Japan and France.

  • NTS seek to attract people from diverse backgrounds to build on our inclusive culture. We have appointed an executive level sponsor who is the driving force of our diversity action plans, raising the awareness of diversity and inclusion across NTS, and supporting the HR team to transform diversity across the business.

    NTS are committed to inclusivity and will consider requests for flexible working from applicants including part time and job shares.

    Supporting initiatives like the Women in Rail and the Big Rail Diversity Challenge helps us to stay connected to industry-wide networks and ensure that we remain at the forefront of diversity and inclusion. Our Rail Director, Julie Nerney, is committed to using her leadership position in the rail industry to support and advocate for more opportunities for women in rail.
