Cross-Channel delays return
Cross-Channel road freight operators have seen more backlogs and delays today, with ‘Operation Stack’ back in place on the UK’s key M20 motorway, and traffic congestion at the ports of Dover and Calais and at Eurotunnel terminals looks set continue over the next few days as the MyFerryLink dispute shows little sign of being resolved.
In a travel update earlier today, P&O Ferries said its Dover-Calais services were “running with delays of up to 40 minutes from both ports”. Yesterday, it warned customers of queues of freight vehicles in Calais’ Eastern Harbour with “long waiting times before check-in”.
