Did you know that the Port of Dunkerque’s territory covers over 7 thousand hectares?
Just 40km from Dover and around 10km to the Belgian border, Dunkerque is the ideal port for transporting goods between the UK and Continental Europe.
Today, we’re covering why France’s third-ranking port could be the answer your business needs.
Located on the North Sea, the Port of Dunkerque is France’s leading port for copper, ore, coal and containerised fruit.
Due to the port’s closeness to the Belgium border (around 40km closer than Calais), hauliers and couriers who use Dunkerque instead can save time & money.
Thanks to several of the port’s features, businesses who choose to transport their goods via the Port of Dunkerque can enjoy many more benefits, including…
The parking area at Dunkerque is protected by 2 sets of fencing - the tallest being 4m high - infrared CCTV and security guards. Meanwhile, the port's pre-checking area provides plenty of space for the driver to have a break and a rest before catching the ferry.
These features help to keep your goods safe and give you peace of mind.
This means that everything the driver may need to prepare just before the journey is available in one place.
In a rush? No problem.
