FTA asks French government to pay £21m to UK hauliers

The French government has been asked by the Freight Transport Association (FTA) to compensate UK hauliers for the money lost during Operation Stack. 

It is estimated that the UK freight industry lost £21m over the course of the 28 days Operation Stack was in place. 

The FTA calculated that at the height of the situation – caused by a combination of striking workers in Calais and thousands of migrants trying to gain access to the Channel Tunnel – the industry was losing up to £750,000 a day.
