MORE FREIGHT VOLUMES BETWEEN UK AND CONTINENT
DFDS signs an agreement with two leading logistics providers with effect from September 2012
DFDS has entered into new contracts with two leading Continental logistics providers with effect from September 2012. The new contracts are expected to add around 260,000 lanemetres of freight annually to DFDS two routes out of Vlaardingen (Rotterdam) to respectively Felixstowe and Immingham. The new volumes correspond to annual volume growth of around 7% on the two routes. Freight capacity has recently been reduced on the North Sea market between the UK and Holland as a competing route was closed in August.
