As the road transport industry continues to battle its way through the COVID-19 crisis, Brexit looms. Extra ferry services to mainland Europe and the announcement of Green routes in the UK for transit may offer some assistance.
New Brittany Ferries sailing from Rosslare to Roscoff announced
Brittany Ferries has started its new sailing from Rosslare to Roscoff in France every Monday evening. The ferry company has been sailing twice a week from Rosslare Europort to Bilbao in Spain since arriving to the South-east port in February, but has now added a third weekly sailing to Roscoff.
