Eurotunnel celebrates 20 millionth truck in 20 years
Eurotunnel, a leading rolling motorway, celebrated the passage of its 20 millionth truck since services began on 25 July 1994. The vehicle was conveyed on board a freight shuttle train travelling from Coquelles (France) to Folkestone (UK).
In 2013, the 15 Eurotunnel freight shuttle trains which operate 24/7, 365 days a year, carried almost 1.5 million trucks. The 20 millionth truck belongs to Emons Cargo BV – part of the Dutch Emons Group, operator of 160 ultra modern 2WIN double deck trucks. The company and Groupe Eurotunnel share common values of innovation and respect for the environment. (ben)
