Framgångsrik lansering av ny ro-pax för Baltikum

Friday the 13th is considered a unlucky day in Western superstition. Fortunately this is not the case in China. So despite of the date we were confident that the launch of our second ro-pax newbuilding for the Baltics at the Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) would be a success story. The launching ceremony took place at […]

Q3-resultat: Bättre än ursprungligen förväntat

We just published DFDS results for the third quarter. Operating profit was DKK 846 million, which is DKK 349 million less than last year’s third quarter operating profit. The reduction is mainly due to our passenger business being severely hit by COVID-19 travel restrictions. However, the result is better than originally expected, as the freight […]

Following the UK government’s UK entry restrictions for travelers from Denmark after the discovery of a mutated Coronavirus in mink, DFDS has been in contact with the UK authorities about how to handle the entry restrictions and keep everyone safe. “This means that ships calling at UK ports from Danish ports and vessels calling at […]

Nytt järnvägssystem i BU Med

You might have noticed that use of rail services as part of a freight transport chain – intermodal transportation – is developing throughout DFDS. The Intermodal Department and Trieste terminal are well versed in this practice and are currently running about 56 round trips per week to many European destinations.  To improve the shift from road to rail and ferry, BU Med has successfully implemented a new system called ‘r2L-traileruse’. It is devised by transport and logistics company and important customer for BU Med, Vega. Before going into what the new system can do, here […]

Covid-19: DFDS minskar segling på Danmark - Norge

COVID-19: One of the two ships serving DFDS’ passenger routes on Copenhagen – Oslo and Frederikshavn – Oslo will be temporarily laid up due to tighter travel restrictions. Unfortunately, 20 waiters will be affected, whilst other colleagues will maintain their jobs as a result of a trade union agreement, relocation to other ships, etc.  Increasing infection rates and stricter travel restrictions have reduced further the number of passengers on DFDS’ passenger ferry routes on Copenhagen – Oslo and Frederikshavn – Oslo in recent weeks.  “With […]

Klimatplan: hur mäter vi dess effekt?

A few weeks ago, The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), a charity that runs a global environmental disclosure system for investors, companies, cities and states, sent a letter to companies emitting substantial amounts of greenhouse gases. The letter urged the companies to use science-based targets (SBTi) in line with the Paris Agreement to avert climate change.  DFDS was one of three Danish companies to receive this letter. “We have a new climate plan and concrete initiatives in place […]
