Brexit communication control at Ports and Eurotunnel

October 21 2019

Variable message signs are a flexible and dynamic way of conveying valuable information at British and Irish Ports and Euro-tunnel. Advance passenger information is easily relayed in real-time via our mobile, solar signs.

The use of Variable message signs at Ports / tunnels can be an effective way of imparting dynamic information to traffic. Mobile VMS offer a flexible and portable sign solution that can be used for communicating:

  • Brexit related information on border / customer control 
  • Advance Passenger Information (API)
  • Safety and Environmental messages relating to Port / Tunnel operations
  • Information on Road works and Road closures which impact Port / Tunnel traffic  
  • Cruise ship information
  • Other police / road safety related messages


 "The signs were found to be of considerable benefit and their portable nature and JamLogic software meant they could be easily deployed around the Port estate and programmed in minutes."

"Having initially trialed a mobile variable variable message sign from Mobile VMS Ltd, the Port Operations team decided to invest in signs to promote dynamic, safety and service information to our Port users. In addition, the VMS signs fitted with radar attachments are used for Belfast Harbours' ongoing road safety programme. The VMS with radar attachment display vehicle speeds which advise drivers to reduce speed accordingly in critical areas. The Harbour Police have recently procured additional VMS for use in site security, events and traffic management.

Visitor and passenger safety is of paramount importance in the Port of Southampton and the use of these VMS along with the associated JamLogic control software allows us to display active messaging and prepare in advance for busy cruise ship arrivals and departures. 

ABP Southampton Operations and Security Teams have been really impressed with the levels of service and support offered by Mobile VMS during the recent procurement of several VMS for use in safety, security and information to passengers and visitors to the Port of Southampton.
