No-deal Brexit ferry company owns no ships and has never run Channel service
Concerns raised over Seaborne Freight, which won a £13.8m contract to operate a Ramsgate to Ostend route
One of the companies contracted by the government to charter ferries in the event of no-deal Brexit does not own any ships, has not previously operated a ferry service and is not planning to do so until close to the UK’s scheduled departure date from the European Union, it has emerged.
Concerns have been raised about Seaborne Freight, which was awarded a £13.8m contract to operate freight ferries from Ramsgate to the Belgian port of Ostend if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, after a councillor for the Kent port queried whether it would be possible to set up the new service by the scheduled Brexit date.
