DFDS launches unaccompanied freight service from Sheerness to Calais.

DFDS has announced a new unaccompanied freight service between Sheerness in the Thames Estuary and Calais. Operated by Gothia Seaways, the service will commence on 1st June and will offer one daily sailing in each direction with a capacity for up to 165 unaccompanied freight units.

Sheerness is part of the Peel Ports’ London Medway cluster and is operational 24 hours day, seven days a week. The port is close to the M25 orbital motorway, making it ideal for goods heading to London and the Midlands.

Wayne Bullen, Freight Sales Director for DFDS said: “We’re really pleased to be adding a new unaccompanied freight service to the extensive route network that DFDS already offers… Sheerness promises to be a superb ‘partner port’, with an ambitious plan to grow its services over the next decade. We also continue to cement our partnership with the port of Calais and are excited to be expanding our services to the port as it marks the fulfilment of its multi-million-pound expansion project”.
