Eurotunnel makes 33 million runs

[ July 13, 2022   //   ]

The 33 millionth truck crossed the Channel aboard the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Freight service on Monday 12 July. It belonged to Nordfrost, the biggest German frozen and chilled food transporter to the UK and a customer that has used the service since its opening in 1994. The driver, Rene Schwarze, has been driving for over 13 years and in that time has used the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Freight service over 2,500 times.

Since 1994, more than 700million tonnes of goods have been transported via the tunnel aboard one of the 15 Truck Shuttles.
