31st July 2015 - Press Release

Port delivers more despite ongoing challenges

Whilst images of vast numbers of freight vehicles waiting on the M20 might give the impression that things are not moving, yesterday the Port of Dover handled almost 8,500 of them, over 3% more than on the same day the previous year.

Tim Waggott, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, said:

“I am so proud of the whole team at the Port of Dover.  Amidst an extremely challenging backdrop, the Port has stayed open throughout the past few weeks. 

“This is an unprecedented period.  Whilst the situation at Calais and Eurotunnel remains entirely out of our control, to be delivering such volumes for UK plc is testament to the resilience, professionalism and efficiency here at Dover.”

The Port continues to work closely with all of its multi-agency partners in responding to the ongoing situation.
