Getlink: new cross-Channel freight service
(CercleFinance.com) - From 18 September 2021, a new cross-Channel freight service will be open to all transporters, using an unaccompanied mode through the Channel Tunnel.
The crossing will be managed by Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Freight and will operate 24 hours a day and six days a week. Departures will be from the Group's two terminals in Calais or Folkestone. The capacity will be 8,300 trailers per year. The Eurotunnel Border Pass will allows transporters to speed up the border crossing by digitising their administrative exchanges with the border authorities.
This new rail service, which will emit 40 times less CO2 than ferries, will enable customers to decarbonise their logistics chain by choosing rail.
