Dover worth £89 billion says report

[ April 2, 2014   //   ]

Independent economic consultancy Oxera has calculated the 2.2 million freight vehicles a year using the Port carry goods worth an estimated £89 billion, in a new economic impact survey. Tim Waggott, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, said it showed the real, and too often unseen, value of the port and the work of the team on behalf of UK plc. The report also found the combination of Dover’s location and the efficiency of its operations had a net benefit to its customers of some £2.3 billion.
