Freight Transport Association calls for compensation

Tags:


A freight haulage trade body is demanding compensation for lorry drivers caught up in the Operation Stack chaos. The Freight Transport Association called for “suitable compensation” to be considered by the French government.

The trade association says freight operators should be given payouts to help cover losses caused by the controversial traffic measures. According to the Freight Transport Assoication, the cost to UK hauliers whose vehicles were stuck on the M20 was more than £21 million during the 28 days that Op Stack was implemented between June 23 and August 2.

That estimate does not include loss of business, spoilt cargoes, missed export deadlines or the percentage of journeys diverted.
The FTA’s deputy chief executive James Hookham said: “FTA is calling on the French government to consider compensation for UK freight operators to help recover some of their losses this summer due to Operation Stack.

Op Stack is a system which allows lorries to park on the M20 during cross-Channel disruption.
As many as 6,000 freight lorries were stuck on a 35-mile stretch of the M20 during the latest bout of Stack, causing chaos for truckers, freight operators, tourists and Kent businesses and residents.

The FTA estimated that the crisis was costing the UK freight industry approximately £750,000 a day, as trucks were stopped on closed sections of the major route used to access Eurotunnel and the Port of Dover.
