dfdsA new-build ro-ro freight ferry  has been ordered by DFDS from the Chinese Jinling Shipyard.

 

 

The new build is designed to carry 6,700 lane metres of freight equivalent to around 450 trailers and will be in the same lines with the previously ordered freight ferries.

 

 

The unit costs and environmental impact per transported unit  decreases because of the large capacity.

As per the customer demand for capacity the new ferries will be deployed and the first two new ferries will be launched in the beginning of the next year while the third and fourth in the second half of 2019 and the last two in the first half of 2020.

 

 

There will be two combined freight and passenger ferries to be delivered in 2021 as a part of DFDS’ fleet extension and renewal programme. This will cater to the Baltic route network.
