In September 2019, Passenger Shuttles carried 238,119 vehicles, down slightly by 1% from September 2018 which is a strong performance given that 2018 was the best month of September since 1999. Since 1 January 2019, almost 2.1 million passenger vehicles have crossed the Channel with Le Shuttle, down 2% due to the delay and uncertainty around Brexit even though border controls will not be changed.
Truck traffic in September 2019 is down 7% compared to September 2018, mainly due to a slowdown in UK consumption and in the German economy. Since the beginning of the year, almost 1.2 million trucks have crossed the Channel on Le Shuttle Freight services.
