Eurotunnel: DFDS does not have a case

The critique from both DFDS and P&O Ferries does not affect Eurotunnel, which is about to insert the three old Seafrance ferries on the English Channel, in direct competition with the two shipping companies. “We have a better project than they do,” Eurotunnel tells ShippingWatch.

French-English Eurotunnel strongly denies that there will be any threat to the free competition when Eurotunnel via Eurotransmanche inserts three former Seafrance ferries on the Dover-Calais route on the English Channel. Quite the contrary, the company says, there is a basis and a need for more players on the market.

“We do not believe that there is any unfair competition involved from our side. Everything has been done through an open and transparent process, where all interested parties have had the chance to make their bid. We were chosen because we had a better project than the others,” says Eurotunnel spokesman John Keefe to ShippingWatch.
