After christening the third new DFDS freight ferry in Göteborg on Friday 29 November, the mega roro started to operate on the Ghent route.
On Sunday 1 December she called for the first time. After her first return trip, DFDS invited the Belgian and Dutch media to show the new ship.

Sam De Wilde, Managing Director of DFDS’ Freight Ferry and terminal activities in Belgium, explained how DFDS has grown the ships in function of the cargo. “We had the Flower-class, then they were lengthened. Now Hollandia Seaways is a 6,800 lane meter ship. She will do two return crossings a week. The two other, smaller ships will also each do two return trips.”
