P&O Ferries sails record volumes on the Channel

Never before has P&O Ferries transported so many units of cargo across the English Channel as in 2015 in which both the third and the fourth quarters set records. Conflicts during the peak season did not impact the positive developments.

Dover-based ferry carrier P&O Ferries set a freight record between Dover and Calais in 2015. The total volumes transported came to 1,340,317 units of freight across the Channel in a period where an extra ferry was employed to keep up with demand, totaling six ferries sailing back and forth on the English Channel.

The amount of freight thus increased 22 percent compared to the previous year, according to a press release from the carrier, and both the third and fourth quarters broke records for freight volumes per quarter.
