DFDS To Take Over the Ro-Ro Service from Turkish Company Alternative Transport
Alternative Transport is experiencing financial difficulties. The Turkish company announced to stop operating the route between Sète, France and Cesme, Turkey. To assure its continuation, DFDS will start to run the route as from 1 July.
The route represents 20,000 to 25,000 trucks a year.
DFDS will test the route for six months, with two sailings a week.
Two 310-unit vessels will be put on the route.
It also means Toulon will lose one of the three weekly calls.
