Copenhagen, March 5, 2018
Primula was able to sail to Ghent without assistance. The damage is now being investigated and the ship could be out of service for a number of weeks.
To mitigate the effect of the incident on our customers, DFDS is leveraging the extensive route network and a larger ship from another route will be swapped with a ship on Gothenburg-Ghent. This will add capacity to Gothenburg-Ghent.
In addition, a ro-ro ship will be chartered short-term and arrive in Gothenburg on Tuesday 6 March 2018. DFDS will also consider chartering further tonnage if required.
With these changes, it is anticipated the incident will not cause major delays for our customers.
