Brexit-Proof Roro Shipping Route

By | 2019 Newsletter week 4 | No Comments

 A time-limited ferry service will start on 30 March, but only if a ‘no deal’ Brexit occurs. The service ends on 30 September.  The freight ferry service is being advertised via the website, and has the Dutch port of Moerdijk (south of Rotterdam) as continental base.

 Twice daily return trips are planned between Moerdijk and the Ipswich region. A spokesman of the company said that the UK destination ports are split between three locations, but all within a 4.5-hour crossing. 

He added that the voyages are pre-booking only, so as to allow for designated queues at both the port and for customs. The company charges per vehicle, capped at a 17mx2m articulated vehicle. The unknown ships can carry 70 vehicles per crossing. The ships are leased from “a well-known US owner.”
