Expertise in shipping metals

The transportation of steel is a challenge for many transport companies and our dedicated metal team will always offer the services that fit your needs. To provide companies in the steel industry with a solution, DFDS has invested heavily in out-of-bulk equipment on trailers and in ports. This enables DFDS to quickly and reliably ship large volumes of steel across Europe.

In 2016, DFDS handled 125 000 tonnes of steel for ArcelorMittal, the world's largest steel producer, resulting in an unparalleled damage rate of only 0.008%.
