Crisis talks continue today over Huelin-Renouf freight future
Monday 19th August 2013, 12:00PM BST.
UNCERTAINTY continues to surround the future of Huelin-Renouf’s freight ferry link this morning, after news broke at the weekend that crisis talks
have been held.
The shipping firm employs 90 staff, including employees at its operational centre in Guernsey.
Reports say discussions have been going on all week in an attempt to save the Channel Islands ferry business that has 40 staff in Jersey, an operational centre in Alderney and workers in the UK and Cherbourg.
It is also reported that at one stage this week it looked as if Jersey’s States was going to take temporary control of the company that has been involved in handling goods travelling to and from the island for 78 years and is said to have been hit badly by the loss of LVCR trade.
More talks are being held today.
