Record freight numbers for Port of Dover

A RECORD number of freight vehicles departed from the Port of Dover last Wednesday, reaching numbers not seen since before the recession. Helped by the problems at Eurotunnel, a total of 5,337 freight vehicles departed for Calais and Dunkirk from Europe s busiest ferry port, beating the previous record of 5,322 set in 2008.

It was also the third busiest day ever for total numbers, with 10,134 freight vehicles handled.

The busiest day before that was in 2008 when the port handled 10,584 freight vehicles following the Eurotunnel fire in September of that year.
