Danish shipping and logistics company DFDS has ordered one additional RoRo from the Chinese Jinling Shipyard.

The newbuilding is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2020.

“This freight new building increases our order book 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,” Niels Smedegaard, CEO of DFDS, commented.

The newbuilding is similar to the four previously ordered freight ferries and likewise designed to carry 6,700 lane meters of freight equivalent to around 450 trailers. The large capacity decreases unit costs as well as the environmental impact per transported unit, according to the company.

DFDS’ fleet renewal programme also includes two combined freight and passenger ferries to be delivered in 2021 for deployment in the Baltic route network.

In addition, one chartered combined freight and passenger ferry will be delivered in 2021 for deployment on The English Channel routes.
