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.
