No access to France for UK passenger and accompanied freight transport

21 Dec 2020

Access to France for Passenger Transport and Accompanied Freight from the UK

 

Last night, the French Government announced that all passenger transport and accompanied freight from the UK will be unable to access France. This will take effect from 11pm tonight (GMT) and will last for a period of 48 hours. Given this, hauliers must avoid traveling to Kent ports (including Eurotunnel) and other routes to France until this period is over.

 

Unaccompanied freight will continue to be able to travel to France and inbound freight will still be allowed to come to the UK. The Prime Minister will chair a meeting tomorrow to discuss the steady flow of freight into and out of the UK.

 

Hauliers seeking alternative paths must ensure they have made the correct arrangements to travel via that route.
