Scandlines can be satisfied with the summer season. In a press release they say they transported close to one million vehicles and three million passengers on the routes Rødby-Puttgarden and Gedser-Rostock.

The ferry traffic was stable. There was a double-digit growth in the number of transported vehicles. And, there were no significant technical problems. All this created a perfect scenario for the busiest months of the year. During the summer months, Rødby-Puttgarden had more than 9,000 departures in total, with four departures per hour.

The introduction of ferries BERLIN and COPENHAGEN increased the capacity on Gedser-Rostock, and by virtue of their hybrid propulsion they helped Scandlines to decrease the fuel consumption significantly.
