FCL & FTL Shipping

If you are transporting full loads or large volumes of cargo, then you need a full container load (FCL) or a full trailer load (FTL). At DFDS, we know that delivering relevant and cost-effective transportation relies on the willingness to continuously invest in state-of-the-art logistics equipment built to handle large volumes of cargo. We offer environmentally friendly solutions and constantly invest in emission-reducing technology. 95% of all DFDS trucks are Euro 5 or 6 and our reefer containers use carbon dioxide which helps reduce the global warming impact of the cooling systems to half.

LTL & LCL Shipping

At DFDS, we own our assets – from terminals to vessels and trucks. Thanks to economies of scale and the ability to consolidate cargo, DFDS will keep the supply chain moving, regardless of the types of transport. Whether you have a less than trailer load aka groupage transport (LTL) or a less than container load (LCL), our specialised equipment ensures that your cargo will arrive in pristine condition, every time. Our part loads transport services are perfect if you want your items to be handled carefully and professionally by the end customer.
