DFDS concentrates on core business after sale

DFDS has announced that it is selling the mini-cruise route between Norway and Denmark to the Swedish shipping company Gotlandsbolaget. This is to ensure that the route receives the focus and investment necessary for its further development. DFDS strengthens its focus on its core business within freight, passenger transport and logistics.

The sale includes the two ships operating on the Oslo-Frederikshavn-Copenhagen route, as well as the port agreements and terminal equipment. The approximately 800 employees working in route operations and support functions will also move to Gotlandsbolaget. 

“The route is a part of our history and heritage, and it is with a heavy heart that we have found a new home for the route and will be saying goodbye to a lot of valued colleagues. We have determined this to be the best way forward for all. We have grown and developed significantly over the years, and the route deserves to be in the hands of an owner with cruise experience as a core part of their strategy going forward. We are happy to have found that with Gotlandsbolaget,” says Torben Carlsen, CEO of DFDS.
