Ferry Companies Cut Freight Waiting Times On Dover-Calais Route

Freight drivers will face fewer delays at Dover or Calais following an agreement between DFDS and P&O, which will speed up the flow of freight traffic and cut waiting times.

The shared capacity deal will allow freight drivers to board the next available sailing when they arrive at the Port of Dover or the Port of Calais, regardless of which of the two ferry companies is operating the crossing. The move could save freight drivers up to 30 minutes on their overall journey time.

The deal is restricted to freight vehicles only and does not apply to sailings on the Dover-Dunkirk route, which is solely operated by DFDS.
