British government terminates contract
The British government has terminated a “no-deal” agreement with Seaborne Freight. The deal has been canceled because the Irish shipping company Arklow Shipping, who were suppose to supply the ships that were part of the agreement, decided to pull out of the deal. Seaborne Freight does not own their own ships and therefore needed a partner in order to hold up their end of the bargain.
"Due to Seaborne Freight's ship supplier Arklow Shipping’s decision to pull out of the deal it is clear that Seaborne cannot meet the contractual requirements issued by the British government. The government is already communicating with numerous companies to ensure additional freight capacity, amongst these via the port of Ramsgate, in case of a no-deal Brexit, "A spokesman from the British government says to The Guardian.
