Early May DFDS entered a five-year agreement with Stora Enso to transport around 700,000 tons of paper and paperboard products annually. This week (week 25), DFDS
launched the new route between Zeebrugge and Gothenburg.
The two tailormade 2,450 lane metre ro-ro ships owned by Wagenborg and operating on the route since the beginning have been acquired by DFDS and given DFDS names.
SCHIEBORG became BELGIA SEAWAYS and SLINGEBORG is now GOTHIA SEAWAYS.
FIONIA SEAWAYS has been transferred from the Gothenburg – Ghent route to the new route and will take part in the 8 to 12 weekly departures. She left Gothenburg for the first time on 15 June, Zeebrugge-bound.
