Avoid Operation Stack - Export to Europe Without Delay

Due to the migrant crisis in Calais, cross-Channel freight is being seriously disrupted and the police have implemented Operation STACK on the M20 to alleviate the situation.  The fact remains that whether travelling by ferry from Dover or through the Channel Tunnel, freight transport is being delayed.  The queues on the M20 have reached 35 miles in length.  The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has estimated the cost to the freight industry at £750,000 per day.  Failure to deliver to Just-In-Time manufacturing schedules and reduced shelf-life for perishable product represents a wider cost to UK industry; the FTA estimates the cost to the UK economy as £250 million.  

What can be done?  The problem won't go away until migrants are removed.  The authorities are providing more fences, but more fences merely move the problem to the end of the extra fence.

What is really needed is a different route which avoids the Channel Tunnel and Calais altogether.  FreightArranger is providing a guaranteed scheduled export route from UK to the Netherlands and North Germany without going through Dover and Calais.  And it's environmentally friendly too.  We can supply you with a shipping container for the transit.  Peace of mind and no queues.  What more could you want?

As you can imagine, capacity is being taken up very quickly, so get in touch NOW.
