Transporting full loads and part loads

Move full loads

Are you moving a lot of cargo? Large volumes? Enough for a full container load (FCL) or a full trailer-load (FTL)?

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.

Move part loads

At DFDS, we own our own assets – from terminals to vessels to trucks. Thanks to economies of scale and the ability to consolidate cargo, DFDS will keep your supply chain moving, whatever the size of your consignment.

Whether you have a less than trailer load (LTL) or a less than container load (LCL), our specialised equipment ensures that your cargo will arrive in pristine condition, every time.

We have 8 strategically placed terminals all over Europe and operate 24 ferry routes on a fixed schedule, with modern and purpose-built vessels.

With DFDS, you’re always close to high-frequency rail services and a high-capacity network. No matter the combination, our multimodal transport is fast, seamless, and environmentally sustainable.
