Also inaugurated is a new EU-homolgated drone surveillance system that is able to supervise various port sites by day and night, using remote control teleoperations.


GPMD has also enlarged the truck staging area and passport control area for HGV drivers, and boosted various customs control areas.


Dunkirk is the third largest Continental gate for UK accompanied ro-ro freight, after the Port of Calais and Eurotunnel, which have also taken various measures to mitigate Brexit consequences.
