With 135,341 trucks transported in April 2018, Le Shuttle Freight recorded traffic growth of 4% compared to the month of April 2017 and achieved the second-best April in its history. Overall, truck traffic is up by 4% since the first of January 2018, with almost 560,000 trucks transported.

Le Shuttle passenger traffic with 221,654 passenger vehicles transported, was 9% below traffic in April 2017, doubly penalised as a result of the situation in France, which is having a negative impact on the country’s attraction to tourists, and the calendar effect which saw the Easter holiday departures falling in the month of March in 2018 (April in 2017). Since the start of January 2018, almost 720,000 passenger vehicles have crossed via Le Shuttle.

The traffic figures for the month of May will be published on Tuesday 12 June 2018 prior to the opening of trading.
