Employment and economic benefits

ZoomBrittany Ferries is one of France’s major economic and social contributors, purchasing around half its supplies from French companies and local authorities. These purchases range from ship supplies, maintenance, cleaning and insurance to tourist and port services. In France, 83% of our spending is with companies and regional authorities in Brittany, Normandy, Pays de la Loire and Ile de France. We employ of 2,800 staff (full-time equivalent), and generate 6,700 jobs indirectly. Western France also benefits from the economic spin-offs of tourist stays for British and Irish customers. As a result we contribute directly to the sustainability and prosperity of the territories we serve. Our key aim is the sustainable growth of our European routes. Our Company joins up the Atlantic Arc with a route network that facilitates the circulation of people and goods.
