How to Transport Electric Vehicles Between UK and Continental Europe

While electric vehicles (EVs) can have a huge environmental and financial benefit for businesses, transporting them via ferry can sometimes be difficult.

The weather conditions, air humidity, salt levels and closed vehicle decks are just a few of the unique circumstances that come with maritime travel.

Because of these conditions, hauliers may face challenges associated with transporting alternative-fuelled vehicles by freight ferry.

The good news is that, for those businesses, there is an ideal solution available.

Enter Eurotunnel Freight

The quickest, most affordable and practical way to ship your cargo between Continental Europe and the UK is with Eurotunnel Freight.

At peak times, Eurotunnel Freight can run up to 7 trains per hour, with a 35-minute average crossing time. In contrast, electric van drivers who prefer to use the VP or VP Flexi services can select from up to 4 trains per hour with guaranteed departure times.

Eurotunnel Freight also employs strict security measures to guarantee the highest degree of protection for drivers and their loads.

As well as convenience and security, businesses can also benefit from additional savings on driver hours and vehicle downtime when transporting via Eurotunnel Freight.
