New innovative freight model for the Port of Ramsgate

Following a successful week at the European trade show Multimodal 2017, the Port of Ramsgate team with the support of their new consultant Robert Hardy are developing a new innovative model for the movement of accompanied and unaccompanied freight.

The Port of Ramsgate has a fundamental role to play in the movement of freight between mainland Europe and the UK. The Port can now provide an innovative cost effective solution that will significantly reduce congestion and CO2 emissions.

The model we are developing is based on a user’s guide and is therefore written as if we are both the hauliers and the ship operators, so that risks costs and benefits can be clearly seen by any potential parties.

Although the Port does not intend to either purchase or operate ships ourselves, we will be working closely with existing operators and potential new entrants to deliver this exciting opportunity.
