PAC2 funding

PAC2 is an Interreg Cluster project that has come about as an alliance of partners from the PATCH and C2C (Connect to Compete) Interreg projects.

PAC2 Phase 1 enabled us to develop digital promotional material to celebrate our previous involvement in the PATCH project and in order to promote the Port of Ramsgate.

PAC2 Phase 2 has assisted the council to further promote the Port of Ramsgate through attendance at a trade show to raise awareness of the key selling points for the Port.  These are:

  • only 58 miles from junction 2 of the M25, the same as Dover,
  • M20 Operation Stack has no impact on those using the port,
  • a dedicated road network and tunnel which bypasses the town and links you to the motorway network,
  • excellent connectivity to UK motorway network via M2 and M25 and good links to the M20,
  • short sea times which beat or match other commercial shipping operations,
  • a free flowing port; freight and passengers can be en route within minutes of disembarkation,
  • can accept vessels up to 180m LOA, 6.5m draft, with no tidal restrictions.  There is also scope for larger vessels.

Further promotional material for use on this website is also underway.

One of the most important aspects to us of all of the EU projects has been the ability to network and share experiences and ideas, which will lead to future improvements and has created strong partnerships to aid future trade.
