Meridian Ferries


Meridian Ferries was a freight roro operator servicing the Folkestone to Boulogne route replacing the short lived Opale Ferries. Sailings were inaugurated on the 4th July 1993 with a single vessel. A second vessel was added to the service in February 1995. Unfortunately the company collapsed on the 15th March 1995 after a period of industrial unrest initiated by the French seamen’s union over the use of Eastern European crews.
