P&O Ferries Update - P&O Ferries & DFDS Freight Space Agreement on Dover - Calais Route Commences 7 November 2021

After a few months of hard work and multiple successful trials, I am pleased to announce that our space charter agreement with DFDS on our Dover⇌Calais route will begin on 7 November 2021.

How will it work?

Drivers will still check-in as normal through our booths at Dover and Calais and be allowed to embark on the next available ferry, this could be a DFDS or P&O vessel.

Our sailing schedules have been re-planned so you will be able to get on a ferry every 37 minutes.

Regardless of which vessel the driver sails on, you will stay safe in the hands of our sales team for all account queries and management.


Due to the complexity of certain shipments, the following will not be covered by the space charter agreement and therefore will always sail on our ferries:

  • Hazardous goods
  • Plug ins
  • Out of gauge vehicles
  • Horses
  • Pets
  • Livestock

We are determined to continually evolve, innovate, and provide the best way to keep vital freight services running with goods moving in the quickest and most cost-effective way.

Thank you for your continued support.
