DFDS ups ro-ro orderbook

DFDS has ordered an additional ro-ro vessel from the Chinese Jingling Shipyard, with delivery scheduled for the first half of 2020.




"This freight newbuilding increases our orderbook to five large freight ferries, which will increase our efficiency and enable us to accommodate projected growth in our route network in northern Europe and the Mediterranean, support trade and help our customers grow their business,” said Niels Smedegaard, ceo of DFDS.

The newbuilding is similar to the four previously ordered ro-ros and is designed to carry 6,700 lane metres of freight, equivalent to around 450 trailers.

DFDS’ fleet renewal programme also includes two ro-pax ferries to be delivered in 2021 for deployment on its Baltic route network. In addition, one chartered ro-pax vessel will be delivered in 2021 for deployment on the English Channel routes.
