Dover Harbour Board (DHB) has sold its customs clearance arm, Freight Services Agency (FSA) to Ulster-based Motis Ireland. The port’s chief executive, Bob Goldfield, said he was “excited by their plans for the FSA” which would “give Dover an edge in the marketplace.” Paul King, Finance director of Motis, said his company would support the local economy help the port “to provide world-class services to its customers.”

Motis, based in Newry, offers booking services for freight ferries throughout Europe as well as Alpine tunnel lorry shuttles. It also offers a toll service and is a partner in the All4Trucks parking facility in Calais.
