Seeing as Ostend has already said that the port won't be ready for the end of March and Ramsgate has not had Ro/Ro traffic for 6 years and it also won't be ready, I'm not surprised that Arclow ferries has pulled out.

Just another brexit cock up.

Re: Questions raised over ferry contract

You would think having a boat would be a kind of prerequisite for getting a shipping contract ? Also giving the top job to a guy already bankrupt from a shipping company would be the man to possibly avoid?
Well Chris grayling obviously didnít have any such thoughts
