Another Brexit bypass – Morocco to Poole

[ March 5, 2021   //   ]

United Seaways is to launch a ‘Brexit buster’ route direct from Tangier, Morocco to Poole.

The operator says that the new line, which has been in planning for over two years will help bypass post-Brexit congestion and additional import procedures compared with transiting via Europe and will also significantly reduce emissions.

The route will run once per week and cut journey times to under three days, compared to more than six days via road and two ferry crossings from Morocco to Spain and across the Channel.
