DFDS enters long term agreement with Stora Enso and opens new route

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.

Brexit stockpiling created temporary volumes peak on DFDS' ferry routes

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.
