Denmark’s largest ferry company Færgen achieved its best annual result ever in 2017.
Some causes:
More travellers interested in the Danish islands.
Successful promotions for trips with Faergen to the Danish islands.
Increased volumes on the routes to Bornholm, Samsø, Fanø, Als, Funen, Langeland and Lolland.
The ferries on the routes Ystad-Rønne, Kalundborg-Samsø and Esbjerg-Fanø even achieved the highest traffic figures since the existence of the routes.
Growth in all other business areas: pedestrian tickets, car tickets and the sale of truck and bus tickets.

On 1 September 2018 Faergen is going to hand over the concession for the Bornholm route to Bornholmslinjen, who was able to win the public tender.
As a result, Faergen will relocate its headquarters from Rønne, Bornholm to Svendborg on the Danish island of Funen.

Some key figures:
Sales DKK 1.1 billion = +4.3%
Profit DKK 124 billion = +179.0%
