Before we load, we listen

No one knows your business better than you do. In order to provide you with exactly the care you need and want, it is important that we understand what it is you want to achieve. We take the time to listen to your wishes and understand your precise situation, market, industry, and requirements. Getting to know you and the details of your particular company helps us come up with simple but impactful solutions to your transport logistics needs.

Choosing DFDS as your transportation partner means that you can spend more time on focusing on what’s important to you – like making your company move forward and growing your business. Meanwhile, we promise to take care of moving your precious goods from where they are to where they need to be.

Transporting full loads and part loads

Move full loads

Are you moving a lot of cargo? Large volumes? Enough for a full container load (FCL) or a full trailer-load (FTL)?

We know that delivering relevant and cost-effective transportation relies on the willingness to continuously invest in state-of-the-art logistics equipment built to handle large volumes of cargo. As a result, we always have the right gear to ensure a smooth and swift process, minimising the turnaround in the port.

Move part loads

At DFDS, we own our own assets – from terminals to vessels to trucks. Thanks to economies of scale and the ability to consolidate cargo, DFDS will keep your supply chain moving, whatever the size of your consignment.

Whether you have a less than trailer load (LTL) or a less than container load (LCL), our specialised equipment ensures that your ambient or temperature-controlled cargo will arrive in pristine condition, every time.

Multimodal and Special cargo

Multimodal transport

You can benefit from our precise planning skills when it comes to using the appropriate modes of transportation. We have 8 strategically placed terminals all over Europe and operate 24 ferry routes on a fixed schedule, with modern and purpose-built vessels. With DFDS, you’re always close to high-frequency rail services and a high-capacity network. Trains? Trailers? Trucks? Vessels? No matter the combination, our multimodal transport is fast, seamless, and environmentally sustainable.
