“We are confident in DFDS for their professionalism. We choose the Immingham - Cuxhaven route as this is the most expedient way of moving our locomotives abroad. We have moved about 15 locomotives already, with another two to go within the next couple of months."

Lifitng a train for transportation

Moving the unmovable

Cargo with extreme dimensions requires tailor-made transport solutions and it’s beneficial when this is done as far as possible by one operator which organises the transport from A to B.

The majority of DFDS ports offer multiple destinations, making it easy for cargo to have ‘connecting departures’ and to be moved from one route to another. From sea to road, delivery made easy for your heavy cargo.


Your cargo in good hands

Our dedicated and experienced employees leave no room for error. We ensure professional terminal handling, storage and transportation of small, medium and large project cargo and break bulk cargo.

Taking advantage of the network, knowing our partners and offering the best alternative are the three main reasons for letting DFDS move the unmovable. We can offer one transport package and take a heavy weight off your shoulders.
