As part of the deal, Eurotunnel agreed to make improvements to its terminal.
P&O argues that this put its business at a "competitive disadvantage".
Eurotunnel's case came after the DfT awarded contracts worth more than £100m in total to three firms - Brittany Ferries, DFDS and Seaborne Freight.
The companies were to provide extra capacity across the Channel in the event that a no-deal Brexit led to congestion at UK ports. ■
