FRS has been operating in the Strait of Gibraltar since 2000. It is the only company that operates on all lines of the Strait of Gibraltar.
FRS Cargo was launched in the year 2010 with the Algeciras-Tanger Med line. After extending its business to other lines in the Strait of Gibraltar, in 2014, the Kattegat – a sister ship to the well-known Tangier Express – joined the three vessels already assigned to cargo, further strengthening the shipping company’s presence and reputation in Spain and Morocco.
DFDS has entered into an agreement to acquire FRS Iberia/Maroc, a division of the German short-sea ferry company FRS GmbH & Co. KG.
FRS Iberia/Maroc operates three short-sea ferry routes across the Strait of Gibraltar connecting Spain and Morocco, which will expand the ferry network in Europe.
