British Ports Association praises response to Calais disruption to vital trade flows



The British Ports Association very much welcomes the remarkable job carried out by the Port of Dover, the ferry companies and everyone involved both locally and nationally in responding to the disruption caused by the dispute in Calais.

In a difficult week this has been yet another reminder of the fundamental importance of Dover as a major gateway into the UK for both freight and passengers, supporting the UK economy. The port is a vital part of an industry that handles 95% of the country’s import and export trade.

We join with all those working for a permanent resolution of this dispute and a swift return to normal flows of passengers and freight.’
