Scotland based Briggs Marine, a provider of marine and environmental services, has secured a contract with Irish Ferries at the Port of Dover.

The contract is to provide full landside port and terminal operations services at the ferry port for its brand new Dover-Calais ro-pax ferry service which started today.

The service will make it easier for passengers and hauliers to travel between the Republic of Ireland, the UK and Europe. Irish Ferries has highlighted that this new service will significantly strengthen the capacity and reliability of the land bridge for exporters and importers.

Drawing on its decades of industry experience, Briggs will provide 24/7 support to each and every Dover port-call. Briggs will create around 55 jobs varying from operational roles through to check-in staff, coordination and management positions, with all roles being sourced locally.

Andrew Sheen, Managing Director at Irish Ferries, commented: “We want to deliver a reliable and efficient service for our customers.  Working with a leading supplier who has a proven track record in delivering quick, easy and effortless marine operations is key.  Briggs has a strong reputation within this space, and we were particularly impressed by their energetic approach, passion and commitment to ensuring the highest standards of service delivery to our customers.” 

This contract further expands Briggs’ portfolio of delivering similar, critical marine services for ports across the UK including Liverpool, Immingham (Lincolnshire), Finnart (Scotland), Isle of Grain (Kent), Fawley, Hamble (Hampshire), London Medway and Stanlow (Ellesmere Port).

Collieson Briggs MBE, Managing Director at Briggs Marine also commented: “We share a passion and vision with Irish Ferries that we hope can evolve and grow. Our focus is on building operational confidence with round-the-clock services and recruiting the best skills for this new service. This is a cornerstone contract for us, and one that we hope will deliver long-term success for Irish Ferries.”
