Shuttle traffic in April 2023

Certified with Wiztrust


In April 2023, Le Shuttle Freight transported 98,737 trucks. The comparison with 2022 is impacted by an exceptional change to the base with the cessation of P&O's operations on the Short Straits in April 2022 following the large-scale dismissal of their British seafarers. Since 1 January, more than 420,000 trucks have crossed the Channel aboard the Shuttles.

Le Shuttle transported 214,973 passenger vehicles in April 2023, an increase of 5% compared to April 2022. With more than 602,000 passenger vehicles transported since 1 January, Le Shuttle traffic increased by 21% compared to the same period last year.

Traffic figures for the month of May will be published on Thursday 8 June 2023 before the markets open.
