DFDS to transport 700,000 tons of paper annually for paper producer Stora Enso on a new route between Gothenburg and Zeebrugge. DFDS will acquire two freight ferries for the service. The contract runs for a minimum of five years. DFDS will increase weekly departures between Sweden and Belgium from 8 to 12.
In a freight market as huge as in the one to and from the UK, a volume jump of ten per cent from month to month is very unusual. However, due to Brexit, this is what happened on DFDS North Sea and English Channel routes on average during March.
