Perishables could avoid Dover in no-deal Brexit scenario

London, UK: The government has drawn up plans to redirect lorries that carry perishable goods to Belgian and Dutch ports – rather than Calais – in the event of a no-deal Brexit, according to the Telegraph.

The article claims that ministers want lorries destined for ferries departing from Dover to be sent to ports along the east coast, from where they will be loaded onto ferries headed for Belgium and the Netherlands, rather than wait in emergency lorry parks on the M20 and M26 motorways in Kent.
