As from 11 March, five trains per week will call at the DFDS terminal, to drop and pick-up trucks and containers.
DFDS has 8 freight ferries per week between Ghent and Gothenburg. The idea is to put more freight southward bound on trains.
In the meanwhile, the DFDS ro-ro terminal in Ghent is getting a facelift, with a new office building, and fully automated gates.
Ghent is one of the North Sea Ports (Ghent, Terneuzen, Vlissingen).
