(16 September 2019) P&O FERRIES, the integrated ferry and logistics company, is promising its freight customers a simplified way of moving goods between Britain and Europe thanks to its new freight app.
For the first time, freight customers are able to buy tickets to Europe using a credit card, are able to see live updates on departures and can board their sailing just by quoting their reference number.
Henrik Pedersen, Director of Freight Sales at P&O Ferries, said: “We understand that our customers are looking for a service which is punctual, reliable and cost efficient. In a world of growing complexity, this app helps to simplify their journey with us by providing what is in effect a self-service offering.”
“Freight customers travelling between Dover and Calais can now just pay and go without having to set-up an account. They are able to book and pay online, using a debit card or credit card, and have access to the app 24 hours a day. We believe that this is a market-leading offer which creates clear blue water between us and the competition.”
Bookings are now open via www.poferriesfreight.com. The P&O Ferries’ Freight Pay & Go App is available to download on IOS and Android devices.
