Faster over via Dover

By Categories: NewsPublished On: Friday 17 May 2024

A cross-charter agreement between P&O Ferries and Irish Ferries will enable truck operators to travel on the next available sailing by either operator, irrespective of which company the crossing was booked with.

The ferry companies said the agreement will maximise utilisation of freight space on ships, increasing efficiency and reducing emissions.

All commercial activities remain entirely under the control of P&O Ferries and Irish Ferries.

Announcing the deal, P&O Ferries chief executive Peter Hebblethwaite said: “P&O Ferries is determined to give our customers the best possible service and enable them to reach their destination faster.

“Our Dover-Calais customer satisfaction ratings are the highest they’ve been for five years and we have seen the positive impact of steps we have already taken to make the ferry option better, faster and more flexible. Our new space charter agreement will help us continue that journey.”
