To meet the required frequenc,y DFDS will increase the number of weekly sailings from eight to 12, by adding sailings between Gothenburg and Zeebrugge. Three ro-ro vessels will be operated on the route, for which DFDS has purchased two vessels from Royal Wagenborg : SCHIEBORG and SLINGEBORG, which were originally built for Stora Enso system traffic in Stora Enso big boxes. They represent a value of DKr270M.

 

The third vessel will be transferred from the Gothenburg-Ghent service which DFDS presently covers with four ro-ro freighters.

 

The route is planned to commence on June 1st 2019.

 

“We are very pleased to expand our cooperation with Stora Enso and look forward to supporting their growth through an efficient and flexible route operation," said Peder Gellert Pedersen, EVP DFDS Group and Head of Ferry Services. "We likewise look forward to offering the market additional capacity and services between Sweden and Belgium."
