Five new freight sailings a week from France

Wednesday 02 February 2022


Condor has announced it will be running five high-speed freight sailings per week from Saint Malo to Jersey from April in a move one supermarket says will pave the way for more French products on its shelves.

The new service from Saint Malo will operate year-round on Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays using the Condor Voyager, which recently received certification to carry cargo.

Condor said the ability to carry ambient and temperature-controlled products on its timetabled sailings will increase its capacity by an equivalent of three 13.6m containers per crossing.

“We are delighted that approval has been received as we have been working on this initiative for quite some time, particularly since Voyager entered the fleet last summer,” CEO John Napton said.

“Voyager is a larger vessel than her predecessor, with a corresponding greater deck carrying capacity and the regular sailings will help develop the range of products and materials that can be brought into the islands.”

Co-op CEO Mark Cox added: “We are pleased that Condor is providing the opportunity for a more frequent freight supply from France, this will provide us with further opportunities to expand our popular range of French products.” 

Customs formalities and other post-Brexit documentation will be handled with the help of French firm Morvan Fils Transit, which is part of the Condor Group.
