Our ships sail across the English Channel, North Sea, and Irish Sea, and we employ almost 2,000 members of staff. We have a fleet of more than 20 ships and operate more than 30,000 sailings a year at peak times. In addition to sailing on eight major routes including England to France, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Holland, we also operate intermodal continental hubs at Zeebrugge and Europoort.
