The Port of Dover is Europe's busiest ferry port, handling £119 billion of trade or 17% of the UKs trade in goods.

The Short Straits, which includes ferry links between Dover and Calais, as well as the Channel Tunnel, has a 60% market share of ‘British-Continental EU trade’. The Short Straits has achieved this market share because it is the right choice for business. The reason businesses choose the Short Straits is simple; it offers the most time efficient, cost effective and resilient access to international markets, delivering an estimated £3 billion saving for British businesses and consumers compared to alternative routes.

Dover Cargo Terminal is unrivalled in terms of its strategic location, efficiency and competitive pricing. It's a potent combination that makes the Port of Dover extremely popular with many of the leading European freight carriers, with our fantastic cross-Channel ferry links to the continent.

Currently, Dover Cargo Terminal has a flourishing trade in perishables freight with reefer container ships calling at Dover on a frequent basis. These bring in fresh produce from Central and South America
