DFDS Update - Temporary Inland Border Facilities Closures

Ebbsfleet and Warrington Inland Border Facilities (IBFs) will be closed from 00:01hrs 13 September until 23:59hrs 16 September 2022 UK time.

If you need to attend an IBF during these periods, you must attend either Sevington or Holyhead IBF:

  • Sevington IBF, Ashford, TN25 6GE
  • Holyhead IBF, Parc Cybi, A55 Junction 2, Holyhead, LL65 2YQ

If you attempt to attend an IBF that is closed during this period, you will be redirected to Sevington or Holyhead.

Dover Western Docks and Stop 24 will remain open throughout this period, but HMRC services will not be available at these locations.

As is currently the case, live animals cannot be accepted at Sevington IBF. For any vehicles requiring customs processes relating to live animals in the South East, you will need to attend (as you do now) either:

  • Dover Western Docks, Freight Clearance Centre, Cruise Terminal 1, Lord Warden Square, Dover CT17 9DH
  • Stop 24, Folkestone Services, Junction 11, M20, Hythe, Kent, CT21 4BL

ADR (dangerous goods) loads that are also not accepted at Sevington can be processed by Stop24 and DWD.
