Government Freight Capacity Solutions Registration Portal


The purpose of this form is to register your company in order to be eligible to purchase tickets on the Government's Freight Capacity and to access the Express Freight Services set up by DHSC.

The Department strongly recommends that suppliers of medicines and medical products review their supply routes and, where necessary, put in place robust plans to re-route supply away from the disrupted short straits routes (Dover, Calais, Dunkirk, Folkestone and Coquelles) into the UK, especially during the first three months following Jan 1st 2021 when the most significant disruption is anticipated.

The Government secured freight capacity is designed to support supplier rerouting plans through securing ‘roll-on, roll-off’ freight capacity on which medicines and medical products will be prioritised. For the latest information on the procurement of Government freight capacity, please see here.

The Department’s Express Freight Service is a logistics service, designed to support the uninterrupted supply of medicines and medical products. Access to this service will be granted by DHSC via the National Supply Disruption Response centre where a supplier’s own contingency measures fail.

Please note that by completing this form it does not guarantee access to any capacity, nor does it commit you to using any capacity.

You must provide an answer to this question.

If you do not use HGVs please provide an HGV equivalent (assuming the standard HGV is c.14m). Therefore, two 6m vans would equate to one HGV equivalent. This does not have to be exact but should be an indicative average across your portfolio.

Please note this does not constitute a binding contractual commitment.
This question just covers finished goods.
