New DFDS terminal opens at Dunkirk

May 20, 2016
Ferry operator DFDS has opened its new terminal building at the Port of Dunkirk.

The Euro 14.88 million project took a year to complete and will provide customers with first-class facilities to streamline travel through the port for both private and freight traffic.  

Signage from the motorway has been improved and access to the terminal for HGVs and passenger vehicles has been separated, providing a faster and more secure entry to the ferry port for these two categories of users. The terminal has 11 check-in lanes at the entrance, including one for coaches.  

The new DFDS passenger building covers 350 m2 and is located at the entry to the site. 

All the installations necessary for controls by the French and British authorities have been rebuilt to make the transit procedures clearer for passengers. The new terminal has a double fence and surveillance cameras to ensure user safety and security.  

Once past the control points, passengers enter a huge parking area with 7,380m capacity in 41 parking lanes, including two for special trucks. The car park now holds the equivalent of three shiploads of vehicles.   

The Port of Dunkirk has easy access to the A16 motorway making it a viable alternative to Calais ,28 miles to the west.
