P&O Ferries posts Dover-Calais freight record

P&O Ferries says it carried more freight between Dover and Calais in 2015 than in any previous year in its modern history and expects demand for cross-Channel transport to continue to increase.

The ferry company’s six ships on the English Channel transported 1,340,317 units of freight during the 12-month period − a 22% year-on-year increase.

Both the third and fourth quarters set new records for quarterly freight volumes as P&O Ferries provided an additional vessel and additional sailings on the Dover to Calais route. Freight comprises around two thirds of the company's business.

P&O Ferries’ commercial director, Janette Bell commented:

“We expect demand for cross-Channel transport to increase, driven by a rising population and the strength of the British economy. The vast majority of our freight customers are businesses transporting goods from continental Europe to Britain.”
