Stena Line add Dublin-Cherbourg route in response to increased post-Brexit demand

Stena Line is to operate a new service between Dublin and Cherbourg as the company furthers its freight capacity from Ireland to continental Europe in response to increased post-Brexit demand.

Beginning service next Saturday, the new route will temporarily reduce the weekend capacity of the Dublin to Holyhead route.

Trade levels across the Irish Sea are down substantially with the introduction of new customs procedures and systems that were introduced due to Brexit.

There have been complaints from hauliers and freight operators in getting goods through customs on both sides of the Irish Sea.

Stena Line’s Trade Director for the Irish Sea ‘Paul Grant’ stated that the operator’s freight volumes between Ireland and the UK are down 60% in the first two weeks of 2021.
