Eurotunnel carried 1.64 million trucks on its Le Shuttle Freight service last year, which it reckons is an all time record.
Revenue rose four per cent last year to reach €1 billion, while consolidated EBITDA reached €514 million, an increase of €32 million compared to 2015.
The group completed the sale of its British rail freight subsidiary, GB Railfreight, to EQT Infrastructure II in November.
Jacques Gounon, chairman and chief executive officer, said: “2016 was the best year in our history. Our three core businesses each outperformed their sector: the Fixed Link is a unique asset in the infrastructure world, ElecLink has entered its construction phase and Europorte is the most efficient company in its sector. Our outlook is very good and we are announcing new improved objectives for 2017 and 2018.”
