Port Of Dover Wins Espo Award 2019

13 November 2019, Port of Dover was awarded the ESPO Award 2019 in recognition of its successful strategy to reach out to the local community and to directly communicate with the port citizens. Using social media as a new way of communicating and demonstrating a high level of transparency about operational achievements, future strategies and environmental challenges and performance is becoming increasingly important for European ports who can only function and further develop if they receive the licence to operate from the local citizens.

The ESPO Award was handed out by the Director-General of DG Move Henrik Hololei (picture, right), during a ceremony at the “Albert Hall” in Brussels.

Queues of lorries will stretch back some 17 miles (27km) across Kent’s roads if Britain leaves the European Union without a deal, the Port of Dover has claimed.
Port of Dover produced a video, explaining how efficient trucks are being processed now, and how it would turn into a disaster if even only two minutes extra would be needed post-Brexit.
The video was shown at the Conservative party conference and can be seen on YouTube.
