Brittany Ferries: a piggy ride between Cherbourg and Bayonne

The new service will transport unaccompanied semi-trailers between the UK and the south of Ireland between Bayonne/Mauguere. Two trains of 21 wagons, capable of carrying 42 semi-trailers, will make one round trip per day, 6 days a week.

Brittany Ferries will launch this piggyback service between the port of Cherbourg and the European Freight Center of Mauguere, near Bayonne, at the end of the first half of 2024. The project, which provides direct rail access to ferries running to and from Poole, Portsmouth. Rosslare, in Great Britain and in Ireland, was delayed due to the health crisis.

, This new phase makes it possible to secure our shuttle’s traffic paths for the first five years of rail motorway service. Jean-Marc Rue, president of Brittany Ferry, said (202.4 million in business in 2024, 2,474 employees).

Two multimodal terminals will be built at Cherbourg and Mauguere. Brittany Ferry has purchased the wagons and the company will invest in the Lohr Railway System’s (Lohr Group) piggyback system. Brittany Ferry estimated that the proposal would avoid 25,000 trucks (920 km of road trip) on French roads.
