Ever wondered how many passengers we transport on our ships on an average day? We thought so... It's 17,078 passengers! :) Bonus info.: We handle 107,539 lane metres of freight daily too! All this is only possible due to our dedicated employees, our business partners and our wonderful passengers. That's why, for 150 years, DFDS has been #MovedByPeople
For 150 years, DFDS has moved tons of cargo and thousands of people. It’s been a long and eventful journey across the seas and roads of the world to get here. We’re deeply grateful to all of our passengers, business partners and especially the dedicated employees who got us this far. To celebrate all of you and this great milestone of ours, we’ve created this anniversary film featuring our heroes – the people around us. Because DFDS is…Moved by People.
 
During the summer season, traffic across the English channel changes. From serving mostly single cars and trucks and trailers, DFDS vessels shift to moving thousands of caravans across the channel for summer trips from Manchester to Paris and all around. Speaking of Paris, one way to measure the length of the many caravans is in Eiffel Towers. :-) Check the infographic to see just how many it comes to.
DFDS moves a lot more than people and their cars. At the Larkhall chilling facility in Scotland, over 140,000 tons of Scottish salmon and other seafood are kept cold and fresh as they await transport to restaurants and dinner tables around the world. 90 employees work at the Larkhall facility which has 77,000 square feet of chill capacity and two efficient blast freezers that can each freeze up to 42 pallets of seafood in record time.
 
Taking the helm of any DFDS vessel for the last 150 years, the captain is ultimately responsible for the well being of passengers and crew members. Thanks to all of them, and all of you, we continue to sail ahead towards new horizons. DFDS is #MovedByPeople
People really like beer. They almost always have. For the past 150 years, DFDS has been moving people and their bottles around the world – even giving them the opportunity to enjoy a cold brew on board. On our Amsterdam-Newcastle route alone, we served 335,583 liters of ice cold beer in 2015.
