#ferries - Kent Online writes that the Port of Dover says it is ready to handle "whatever comes its way" as uncertainly over Brexit continues - but lorries firms must be told what documentation they need.

The port's new chief executive Doug Bannister is reassuring the nation that its operations will not cease in the wake Britain's departure from the EU.

In a new statement, he says that dealing with disruption like Operation Stack has enabled it to be more prepared than any other EU-facing gateway.

However, it is still relying on the government to inform the logistics community what documentation will be required for when lorries arrive at ports.

He said: “Throughout the Brexit debate, what people have been desiring is certainty.

"Uncertainty is continuing, but we are prepared.

"We will continue to manage our infrastructure professionally and our team stands ready to handle whatever comes our way.

"We look forward to welcoming customers on March 29, March 30 and far into the future.”
