DFDS’ Denmark-UK freight service continues

New travel restrictions due to mutated coronavirus will not affect sailings on DFDS routes.

Freight ship DFDS’ sailings on the Esbjerg-Immingham freight route won’t be affected by the tightened UK travel restrictions, which were decided after the Danish government informed about cases with a mutated coronavirus spreading from mink to humans.

The new restrictions apply to people only, and cargo on DFDS’ Esbjerg-Immingham route consists of unaccompanied trailers that can continue being transported as usual.

The only exception will be that the two ships servicing the route no longer accept the 12 drivers which we have been able to ship before. The few driver accompanied units we have, will need to be changed to unaccompanied cargo.

No driver who has been in Denmark during the last 14 days will be allowed to enter the UK on any of our routes.
