DFDS Update - French Industrial Action Update 15/03/2023

We have been advised that due to further Industrial Action in the Port of Calais, the shipment of unaccompanied trailers will be stopped until at least 14:00 CET.

There will also be no dispatch team available with immediate affect, which means that access to the UTP to collect or deliver trailers in Calais will be unavailable until further notice. This will be until at least until 22:00 CET tonight.

During this time, trailers cannot be collected from or dropped in Calais Port.

We are able to continue with the shipment of unaccompanied trailers from Dover-Calais however please bear in mind that they cannot be collected from Calais until the Industrial Action is over, and will be put on a waiting list until shipment is permitted.

As an alternative and to avoid further disruption, please consider our Dover<>Dunkerque service for your unaccompanied trailers.

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide you with regular updates, together with any changes to our schedules between France and the UK.

Please note that during the disruption we will be unable to honour time specific bookings, and we will ship all traffic on a first come first served basis.
