Stena Line, Doyle Shipping Group Take Dispute to Court

Ferry operator Stena Line and Doyle Shipping Group have launched legal proceedings before the UK’s Commercial Court over a dispute on the provision of services for ferry docking in Dublin Port, Stena Line spokesperson confirmed to World Maritime News.

The move is being undertaken on the heels of Stena Line’s contract termination with DSG in August this year.

Under the contract worth EUR 4 million (USD 4.6 million) on yearly basis, DSG was in charge of providing services such as stevedoring, checking-in and out of passengers, loading and unloading of freight in addition to administration services.

DSG alleges that the termination notice is not valid as the duo had an oral agreement for the provision of services at Dublin Port until 2022, the Irish Times reported. It also wants injunctions restraining Stena from transferring any of DSG’s contractual obligations to any other party.

Stena Line is said to be contending the charges, however, the company’s spokesperson denied to provide WMN with any further details on the matter until the legal process is concluded.
