“DFDS Logistics division has proved to be an invaluable partner for Marine Harvest operations in Scotland. With factory output now topping 60,000 tonnes of gutted salmon per annum, DFDS and the teams in Fort William and Larkhall, are able to organise, store and load all the customer orders, handling every one of the 3 million equivalent boxes we pack.

Having a strong commercial relationship with DFDS gives us the confidence that we can grow our operation knowing that the associated logistics required will continue to meet our requirements and expectations.
