Unaccompanied freight services on the increase
Getlink’s unaccompanied freight service through the Channel Tunnel has been growing continuously since its launch in September 2021. More recently, Getlink has seen its business accelerate since March 2022, with more than 1,000 trailers carried.
This service, which is fully aligned with the group’s diversification strategy, adds to the range of sustainable logistics solutions provided for hauliers.
The transport of trailers, handled by Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Freight teams on the two Eurotunnel terminals, operates 24/7 and generates 40 times less CO2 than ferries. It offers a number of competitive advantages including speed, ease and flexibility, Getlink said. (ben)
