Changes to Testing for Freight Drivers Shipping to France

Following the latest update from the French government, from 22 February there will be new positive changes regarding freight driver COVID-19 testing when shipping to France.

The changes are as follows:

  • Freight Drivers who spend less than 48 hours in the UK will not require proof of a negative COVID test to cross the border (in either direction).
  • Freight Drivers from the Republic of Ireland (ROI) using the UK land bridge can also now rely on a test taken in ROI, as long as it is administered within 72 hours of departure from a UK port.

For UK drivers or those spending more than 48 hours in the UK, the testing requirements remain in place.

It’s extremely important that freight drivers keep their departure ticket to be able to prove that they have been in the UK for less than 48 hours.

More information is available on UK Government’s website.

Rapid antigen tests for freight drivers at Hull port

On 19 January, Dutch government implemented further Covid-19 restrictions for anyone entering the Netherlands. The new requirement states that people arriving in the Netherlands from UK or Ireland must provide proof that they have tested negative for coronavirus following a rapid test directly before departure. This new requirement also applies to freight drivers. More information is available here.

For our Hull to Europoort route, we have set up a test centre at our Terminal 1 in Hull port (postcode HU9 5PS) and we ask any freight drivers that wish to use our service to arrive at least 1h and 30 mins time before departure in order to minimise the risk of missing the sailing. The test centre is opened Monday to Sunday from 14:00 to 19:30. The cost of the test is £29.

My driver had a puncture as he drove onto the ferry. Three of P&O’s deck staff went above and beyond to help him change the tyre (he is nearly 70). My sincere thanks to these three guys, their help is much appreciated.

We were booked on to a ferry with another operator this morning, who would not let our vehicle on as he’d missed the cut off due to being caught in traffic on the motorway (still arrived over an hour and a half before the ship was due to sail). He then went to P&O Freight office to see if you had any availability today and you were able to get us on the 9am sailing – bearing in mind, he didn’t get to you until around 8:30! Thank you
