Following Friday's decision by the Competition Appeal Tribunal to dismiss an appeal by MyFerryLink to continue trading as a cross-Channel ferry operator, the Port of Dover has said it will work to maintain an effective ferry operation for its customers and seeks to minimise negative impacts for the community of Dover.
Tim Waggott, Chief Executive of the Port of Dover said: "Our immediate thoughts are with those who are directly affected by this decision. The ruling comes at a time when Europe's busiest ferry port has just achieved record freight volumes and so our priority is to ensure that our customers continue to be provided with a great level of service and choice. We will also work tirelessly on delivering our ongoing major investment plans to provide extra capacity and significant new job opportunities for local people.
"We will continue to consult regularly with all of our major ferry customers, and community groups, in the days and weeks ahead as we plan our way forward to future success."
