Christmas treat for freight drivers

Freight drivers for Channel sailings enjoyed complimentary Christmas meals on-board


While many of us were preparing and enjoying Christmas Eve with our families, freight drivers were still on the roads and ships, making sure goods arrive and trade flows.

As a small treat to drivers crossing the Channel on our Dover to Calais and Dunkirk routes, they were able to enjoy a complimentary Christmas meal on-board on sailings from 21 to 24 December.

Traditional Christmas turkey, served with pigs in blankets, roast parsnips in honey, batons of carrots, Brussel sprouts and crispy roast potatoes in a flavoursome jus were served.

A selection of festive dessert treats followed, including mince pies and homemade classic desserts all served in the exclusive on-board driver area, Road Kings.

Dave Lewis, Food & Beverage manager, Says: “Truck drivers face long and variable working hours, long distances and tight schedules. We recognise all year round how important good food and rest is and it’s especially great that we’re able to offer all our freight customers a complimentary Christmas dinner for them to enjoy the festive spirit on-board our ships.”
