La Société Exploitation des Ports du Détroit (SEPD), the company controlled by the Chambers of Commerce of the Upper Region France and the Opal Court, which operates the port, explained that the decrease in traffic is a consequence of the Brexit-related uncertainties and the slowdown in trade Channel Islands.
