Tunnel freight beats pre-Covid levels in December

[ January 7, 2021   //   ]

Eurotunnel operator Getlink says its Le Shuttle Freight traffic was above pre-Covid levels in December 2020, with 131,746 trucks carried, up 8% compared to December 2019. It benefitted from stockpiling ahead of the end of the transition period on 31 and despite testing measures imposed by France on 20 December 2020 for all people travelling from the UK. Le Shuttle Freight transported a record weekly traffic level in the second week of December with more than 40,000 trucks travelling. Tourist vehicles continued to be strongly impacted by travel restrictions put in place in France.
