7 March, 2013
DFDS aims to reverse the swap of tonnage between Gothenburg-Immingham and Gothenburg-Ghent routes
NTEX AB and DFDS have today renewed and expanded their customer agreement concerning the shipping of trailers on DFDS’ route Gothenburg-Immingham/Tilbury. In January 2012, NTEX switched the majority of their volumes to the shipping company North Sea Ro-Ro.
To accommodate the increase of volumes from NTEX, DFDS intends to reverse the swap of tonnage between Gothenburg-Immingham and Gothenburg-Ghent carried out in 2012.
Profit expectation for 2013 revised
Due to an increase in volumes on Gothenburg-Immingham, DFDS’ operating profit before depreciation (EBITDA) and special items for 2013 is expected to increase to DKK 1,100-1,300m from previously DKK 1,050-1,250m.
