Port of Dover posts best traffic figures since 2009



The Port of Dover has just posted its best year-end traffic figures for freight vehicles since 2009, recording an impressive rise of 13% in 2013.

Alongside the 2,206,728 freight vehicles that were welcomed by the Port, passenger numbers reached 12,753,343, another substantial increase of 7% as the Port’s focus on providing excellent customer service and choice paid dividends.

Tim Waggott, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, said: “Such growth acknowledges the commitment of the Port and its major ferry customers to provide the best cross-Channel product and reflects, come rain or shine – and more recently high winds, the reliability and resilience of Dover in getting people and goods to where they need to be.”

Millions of passengers choosing the UK’s number one cross-Channel gateway will have enjoyed the benefits of free Wifi and the Port’s on-going customer service training programme, as well as being witnesses to the major infrastructure works that continue to improve Europe’s busiest ferry port for their journeys of the future.

Mr Waggott added: “My congratulations to our ferry partners and my thanks to all of our customers who entrusted us with their international travel last year.  We will work hard in order to build on that trust as we create the best port in the world.”
