PORT OF FELIXSTOWE, UK: January 21, 2019. DFDS and the Port of Felixstowe have agreed to increase their RoRo ferry capacity by over 40 percent with a new linkspan, tractor units and additional trailer parking facilities.

DFDS“This investment is driven by our long-term confidence in the ro/ro route between Felixstowe and Rotterdam. We are seeing increasing interest in both ro/ro and short sea container connections at all three of our UK ports as shippers seek to minimise risks to their supply chains resulting from Brexit,” explained Hutchison Ports executive director Clemence Cheng.

The agreement includes replacing one of the Port’s existing RoRo bridges with a floating linkspan capable of handling the latest generation of ro/ro vessels and creating over 300 additional trailer spaces for unaccompanied RoRo traffic.

“We are very excited about this investment which allows us to further enhance the high level of customer service that is expected by our clients,” added DFDS president and CEO Niels Smedegaard. “It is also a further step in our striving to provide necessary capacity to continue supporting our customers’ trade and business, even in a possible post-Brexit world.”
