Can I still use ferry travel for business and freight purposes?


Yes - if you are a key worker undertaking essential travel or if you are transporting essential goods to where they are required.

At CalMac, we have a key part to play in the supply chain. To assist everyone during these challenging times, a list of goods that are deemed priority has been created. Any vehicle - be that an articulated vehicle, van, car with or without a trailer, involved in the transportation of these goods will be given priority on all routes and on all sailings. They include:

  • Vehicles carrying food and other goods for supermarkets and shops

  • Vehicles carrying drugs and other medical supplies

  • Vehicles carrying medical oxygen

  • Vehicles carrying items required by the emergency services, in particular, medical items related to the current Covid-19 outbreak

  • Vehicles carrying fuel

  • Vehicles carrying livestock

  • Vehicles carrying animal feed.
