Our customers can expect high quality standards that meet their expectations and go hand in hand with our efforts to meet further improved environmental landmarks.
Our tools are our commitment to dynamic customer service and continuous development aimed at sustainable solutions.
At DFDS, quality is closely linked to our customer service. Our quality improvement schemes are aimed at ensuring that our customers always get service of the promised quality. This means respecting time schedules, contracts and agreements, avoiding or reducing service interruptions, damage to cargo and always trying to achieve the most efficient solutions. In order to do so, we offer transparency and documentation through certification and our efficient customer communications system.
We are all responsible for leaving future generations a world in ecological balance. At DFDS we are committed to continually developing our operations and activities in order to reduce energy consumption and our impact on the environment. To do this, we carefully monitor and document our energy consumption and our impact on the environment. We also aim to convey information about our environmental footprint to our customers and partners, as well as to our employees.
