The UK has spent £108m for “the supply of additional freight capacity on Short Sea crossings for Ro-Ro services between English and European ports.”
This is to ease potential congestion problems at Dover in the event of a no-deal Brexit, as the government ramps up its multi-billion contingency plans.
The Department for Transport has signed contracts with three ferry companies, in order to create more freight corridors away from Dover.
- Brittany Ferries (£46.6m)
- DFDS (£47.3m)
- Seaborne Freight (£13.8m)
