Supply chain solutions
DFDS’ multimodal transport solutions are fast, seamless and environmentally sustainable, thanks to our strategically placed terminals, purpose-built vessels, high-frequency rail services, and high-capacity network.
Multimodal transport means using various modes of transport with one transport bill of lading. It means moving cargo from origin to destination by several modes of transport under one single contract. The same transport carrier is responsible for moving the shipment all the way, in all modes.
Choosing a DFDS multimodal transport solution means choosing a one stop shop service with great geographical reach and flexibility, where we handle every single aspect of your goods transport for you. This means efficient delivery times, reduced inventory costs, and minimising your logistics coordination expenses.
Our dedicated and experienced teams provide you with the expertise and service you need to move forward in your particular industry. We know all about transporting temperature-controlled and high value goods, warehousing, using fourth-party logistics services and other issues you deal with as someone who moves goods across Europe and Turkey.
DFDS provides UK and Italian importers and exporters with fast, efficient, and environmentally friendly intermodal service. When you choose an intermodal shipping service, your shipments are handled by several different shipping companies, where you have a contract with each of them for handling their specific leg of the shipment. Choosing an intermodal transport solution means that you can select carriers for each leg of a shipment based on price or service, and more flexibility in carrier choice if there is an equipment or space issue.
Whether you are transporting smaller consignments, part-loads or full loads, DFDS’ asset-based network and strategic rail, road and sea links help us provide you with flexible and tailor-made solutions that fit your specific, door-to-door transportation needs. We tailor our services with the help of our vast selection of specialised equipment, such as:
DFDS’ own rail service between strategically placed terminals near Birmingham and Milan provides direct links between the UK and Italy's industrial heartlands, reducing the distance travelled by road and avoiding road congestion.
In Norway, DFDS offers efficient port handling of goods at our terminals in Oslo, Moss, Brevik, and Kristiansand.
