Eurotunnel has celebrated the passage of its 20 millionth truck since services began on the 25 July 1994.
The 20 millionth truck [pictured] belonged to Emons Cargo BV, part of the Dutch Emons Group, and passed through the tunnel on 25 March.
Eric Driessen, commercial director of Emons Cargo BV, said: “We have used the Channel Tunnel since its opening 20 years ago. We are frequent users and we are delighted and proud to have the 20 millionth truck to cross the Channel on board a Eurotunnel Shuttle.
“Eurotunnel enables us to meet the high service and sustainability standards demanded by our customers”
Jo Willacy, Eurotunnel commercial director, said: “We are especially pleased that the 20 millionth truck to cross the Channel through the Tunnel is part of one of our earliest customer’s fleets. It is recognition of the professionalism of our employees and the quality of the service we provide”
Last year, the 15 Eurotunnel Freight Shuttles carried almost 1.5 million trucks.
Eurotunnel recently spent £1m on an HGV driver accommodation upgrade for its driver wagons.
