Peder Gellert, DFDS Executive Vice President and Head of the Ferry Division, announced that it has been decided to change the name of the Shipping Division to the Ferry Division.

“It is difficult for people who do not know our industry well to understand the nature of our business more precisely if we are described by the general term ‘shipping’. It will emphasise our important role for travel and trade and even for nations, such as when the UK government relies on our network to ensure the supply of critical goods in case of a no-deal Brexit.”

“However, it makes no sense to use the name Ferry Division unless we refer to our ships as ferries. This means that we will now start using the term ferry for our ships.

In the Ferry Division, we operate ferries: freight ferries, cruise ferries and, passenger and freight ferries.”

Adopting the name will be a gradual process.
