KVSA And DFDS Prolong Their Long-Term Relationship

After a very successful collaboration lasting more than 25 years, maritime & logistics company KVSA and ferry operator DFDS have recently signed a new commercial agreement, spanning the next 10 years at the Felison passenger terminal in the Port of Ijmuiden, Netherlands.

The IJmuiden – Newcastle ferry route has been very fortunate to experience a growing demand in both passenger and freight volumes in recent years, however in February 2020 passenger traffic was severely reduced due to Covid19.

Freight volumes however continued to grow and DFDS are now preparing for the ‘soon to be expected’ return of passenger traffic on the IJmuiden – Newcastle route.

In the renewed partnership, KVSA will continue to service DFDS as landlord of the passenger-terminal and provide daily professional stowage and loading of the 2 DFDS vessels, KING SEAWAYS and PRINCESS SEAWAYS.

Both parties are very much looking forward to a successful continuation of our enduring partnership and we look forward to coming back stronger together, when business returns to normal again.
