Stockpiling hits September shuttle figures

[ October 5, 2021   //   ]

Le Shuttle Freight transported 116,915 trucks in September, down 11% compared to 2020. Getlink said this was an unfavourable comparison because of stockpiling in anticipation of Brexit, pointing out that since 1 January 2021 Le Shuttle Freight has transported nearly 1 million trucks, a decrease of only 4% compared to 2020, representative of the very moderate economic impact of Brexit on cross-Channel flows.

Car traffic was up 6% in September compared to September 2020 due to easing of travel restrictions.
