Special Transport

Special Transport

What is special transport?

Some cargo just doesn’t fit the standard container format. Due to dimensions, weight, or the nature of the goods, special cargo requires special acceptance, handling, loading, and transport procedures. At DFDS, we can give your special cargo the care and gear it requires to arrive on time and in one piece.

Logistics solutions

What can we offer

Our unique network of 24 ferry routes on a fixed schedule, 55 ferries, 8 port terminals, and 9,000 trailer and container units help us deliver quality special cargo shipments and value to our customers.

Our extensive fleet includes extendable flatbed trailers, low loaders, extendable and regular semi low loaders, concrete carriers, escort vehicles, mega and standard flatbed trailers, as well as Kuip trailers.
