Shipping News Feature
UK – NORTHERN EUROPE – Keen to show the lorry drivers who use their services that they value them, P&O Ferries has launched a new Commercial Drivers Club which offers VIP services for freight drivers using its overnight routes on the North Sea. The complimentary club, which was launched over the summer and has already signed up more than 100 members, is unique on the North Sea.

Members using P&O Ferries' terminals at Hull, Zeebrugge or Europoort can enjoy a TV lounge, free refreshments and dedicated lavatory facilities. They are also allocated a cabin with bathroom on board which is solely for their own use, subject to availability during peak season. Nick Pank, P&O Ferries' Head of Freight - North Sea, said:

"Freight drivers are some of our most important and loyal customers and we want to provide everyone who signs up for the Commercial Drivers Club with a VIP service. The benefits for members of travelling with us on the North Sea include discounts in our on-board shops, Sky Sports in the drivers' lounge on our Hull-Europoort services and a new TV area on our Hull-Zeebrugge services.

"We have improved our menus and introduced a new lay-out in the on-board restaurants, with drivers able to sit wherever they want. And when it comes to leaving the port the next morning, we have introduced an improved terminal exit lay-out which allows drivers to be on their way faster than ever before."

Members, who only need to complete an application form to join, receive a swipe card which enables them to access the designated facilities at the ports and also a complimentary P&O Ferries Commercial Drivers Club polo shirt.
