Eurotunnel reported the highest number of trucks carried on its Channel Tunnel shuttle service this August, with 127,769 carried (a 24% increase on 2015’s figure).
Between January and August, the truck shuttles recorded 12% growth (to almost 1.1 million vehicles). However, the number of cars carried fell by 3% to 347,920, which Eurotunnel blames on there being only four weekends in the month. The total number of cars carried from January to August rose by 1%. Coach traffic also grew (by 3%) to 3,325 vehicles, although year-to-date figures show a 10% decline to 36,194 vehicles.
