The British government has cancelled a controversial contract with a shipping company for the case of a Brexits without agreement. The company had no ships.

The newly formed company Seaborne should offer a shipping link between the English Ramsgate and Ostend, Belgium, where the route Dover-Calais should be overloaded due to the necessary border controls. For the 13.8 million pounds (the equivalent of about 15.8 million Euro) contract, the government had to take a lot of criticism.

It had become clear that Seaborne could not comply with his contractual obligations, informed the Ministry of transport in London on Saturday. The reason for the revaluation was that an Irish shipping company had withdrawn their support for Seaborne unexpectedly.

“The government is already in advanced talks with a number of companies, in order to secure additional capacity for ship cargo in the event of a Brexits without agreement, even on a port, Ramsgate”, – stated in the message of the government.
