Security advice

We have worked to improve our security by installing double security fencing to the whole perimeter of the Calais terminal, which complies with the ISPS regulations. Therefore, along with the additional number of security personnel and improved camera systems, DFDS continue to support prevention of clandestine activity as much as we possibly can. You can see more information below:

The MGO BAF, or Maringe Gas Oil Bunker Adjustment Factor, compensates for fluctuations in the price of a ship's fuel. 

If the price rises above a certain level, a surcharge will be applied. If the price drops below a certain level, a reduction in the surcharge will be applied.
