The ferries run between Teesport, Hull, Killingholme, Felixstowe, Harwich, Tilbury, Portsmouth and Poole in the UK and Cherbourg, Caen, Le Havre, Zeebrugge, Hook of Holland, Rotterdam, Europort, and Vlaardingen.
‘Patients may die’
Earlier this week, the government established a customs paperwork support unit for medical goods suppliers to help with getting across borders in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The extra capacity will help drugs firms plan for a no-deal Brexit, the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry said.
“This capacity is an important part of our members’ preparations,” said the industry body’s chief executive Mike Thompson.
“Stockpiles are also in place, and some companies have already sourced their own alternative ferry routes.”
Earlier this week Dame Sally Davies warned that patients could die should there be medical supplies shortages.
“We cannot guarantee that there will not be shortages, not only in medicines, but technology and gadgets,” she told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. “There may be deaths, we can’t guarantee there won’t.”
