Eurotunnel has launched a new service for freight, as part of its preparations for Brexit, the Eurotunnel Border Pass.
The Border Pass will be a “virtual wallet” created and secured by Eurotunnel, in which freight customers can save all the information needed to facilitate a truck crossing the border after 1 January 2021.
Once the truck arrives at the Eurotunnel terminal, it will enter a ‘Pit-Stop’ where its registration number will be captured automatically using connected technology in place across the terminal.
The “virtual wallet” is also integrated with the ecosystem of all of the UK and EU authorities.
Christian Dufermont, Eurotunnel’s freight director, said: “Our customers know that 1 January 2021 will be a day of change. We have created the Eurotunnel Border Pass to simplify the border crossing for them, as much as possible, and they have welcomed it enthusiastically.
“Over the past four years, our goal has not changed: continue to offer our customers the fastest and easiest way to cross the Channel with goods, no matter what the circumstances.”
