The additional ferry capacity Government has secured utilises the ports of Plymouth, Poole, Portsmouth, Ramsgate, Felixstowe and Immingham.

This Government-secured ferry capacity will be used for the import of critical goods, primarily medicines and medical supplies.

There is no proposal to prioritise between ferry ports.
