Port of Dover Weighs in with New Procedures

Freight vehicles using the Port of Dover from Tuesday 3 February 2015 will no longer have to stop for weighing before ferry boarding.

The weighing of outbound goods vehicles and other associated cargo regulations will cease from 1 February and as a result, the Port will be closing its Weighbridges 1,2 and 3 and rerouting all freight traffic using Weighbridges 4 and 5.

New traffic calming measures to complement this new routing will be clearly signposted with new signage and notification that there will no longer be a need to weigh freight vehicles.

These new regulations are a welcome result of the Government’s “Red Tape Challenge”, allowing  operators to dispense with the costly and time-consuming process.

In order to speed up the outbound departure process it is imperative that freight drivers ensure they understand the new procedures and do not arrive at the Port of Dover without the correct weight declaration.
