Groupe Eurotunnel has set a new record for freight traffic.
The group said Le Shuttle Freight carried 1,483,741 trucks between 1 January and 25 November the same number as in the whole of 2015, which was itself a record-breaking year.
In the first ten months of 2016, Le Shuttle Freight grew by more than 12%, largely outperforming the market, which only increased by 5%.
Eurotunnel commercial director Jo Willacy said: “Our business creates extraordinary value for our customers who are themselves confident in their outlook for 2017. The investment programme we have pursued will ensure that we are able to continue this growth through the coming years.”
