The UK Landbridge is especially important for companies involved in the movement of fish, meat and any goods that are subject to sanitary or phytosanitary control. It is vital for these companies that these goods reach their destination as quickly as possible. Any delay to the delivery for these types of goods can have a damaging effect on the quality of the product. The ‘UK Landbridge Package’ provides all the necessary customs declarations and entries, while at the same time offers companies peace of mind that the procedures for their shipments will be handled correctly, so that their journey can be made as smoothly as possible.

The UK Landbridge remains the most efficient way of transporting goods between the island of Ireland and continental Europe. There are 12 sailings per day between Ireland and Great Britain and a departure every ten minutes between Great Britain and France Eurotunnel.
