27th February 2019 - Press Release

Port of Dover welcomes independent confirmation of Port of Dover resilience

The Port of Dover welcomes today's report from Drewry Maritime and their objective analysis of traffic flows across the vital cross-Channel route via Dover.

The report highlights the UK’s reliance on Dover and the challenges of attempting to replicate the unique Dover short sea system anywhere else on much longer routes.  The analysis also makes it clear that there is reserve capacity in Dover to cater for additional peaking along with the opportunity to increase throughput with additional vessel capacity.  This supports Dover’s ongoing master planning work to develop the port of the future in order to continue the success of its ferry business beyond Brexit.

The Port of Dover is the freight market’s clear preference and will continue to be so – it delivers unrivalled speed, flexibility and capacity.  Brexit will not change geography and with virtually half of all of the UK’s roll-on roll-off freight enjoying the advantages of Dover, re-routing even a small amount of traffic will not work and likely require additional investment of up to £2.5 billion (Oxera) to even attempt it.

The Port of Dover has been working with the Government for many months to design new customs processes that will facilitate the flow of this traffic even in the event of a No Deal Brexit.  As these continue to be communicated by Government, our customers can prepare with increasing confidence.
