New freight link between Le Harve and Rosslare

By Dan Walsh

Brittany Ferries has announced the opening of a new freight link from Le Havre in Normandy to Rosslare Europort starting on Friday, November 12th. It will be operated by the company’s freight only Cotentin vessel with the capacity for 120 freight units and 120 cabins.

The new freight line will be provided based on a return trip on weekends; Departure from Le Havre on Friday at 7pm. Arrival in Rosslare on Saturday at 2.30pm. Departure from Rosslare on Saturday at 5.45pm. Arrival in Le Havre on Sunday at 3pm.

Independent Wexford Deputy Verona Murphy recalled that in October 2019, as President of the Irish Road Hauliers Association (IRHA); “I led a delegation to Le Havre in France for discussions around linking Rosslare and Le Havre. At the time I said this would be a game changer and I stand by that. The hugely positive impact for the entire South East region through such a route cannot be overstated.”

Thirty direct Ro-Ro services will now operate between Rosslare and Europe.

General Manager of Rosslare Europort, Glenn Carr, says this is cementing Rosslare’s status as Ireland’s number one port for direct Ro-Ro services to Europe.
