P&O Ferries Sees Record Volumes on Zeebrugge-Tilbury Route

Pan-European ferry and logistics company P&O Ferries ended 2017 with record cargo volumes on the Zeebrugge-Tilbury route.

The company informed that it carried more freight between Zeebrugge and Tilbury during the year than in any other year in the decade-long history of the route.

Between January and December, P&O Ferries handled 185,908 freight units, representing an increase of 4.3 per cent on last year and surpassing the previous best 12 monthly figure set in 2016.

“These outstanding volumes show the growing popularity of the route from the continent to Tilbury, which we expect to rival Calais-Dover as a gateway to Britain within ten years,” Nick Pank, P&O Ferries’ Head of Freight – North Sea, said.

P&O Ferries operates two ferries on the route, the 20,000 ton sister ships Norstream and Norsky, which sail 24 times a week in total on eight-hour crossings.
