DFDS To Take Over the Ro-Ro Service from Turkish Company Alternative Transport

Alternative Transport is experiencing financial difficulties. The Turkish company announced to stop operating the route between S├Ęte, France and Cesme, Turkey. To assure its continuation, DFDS will start to run the route as from 1 July.

The route represents 20,000 to 25,000 trucks a year.

DFDS will test the route for six months, with two sailings a week.

Two 310-unit vessels will be put on the route.

It also means Toulon will lose one of the three weekly calls.

Alternative Transport operated two ships: FADIQ and AYSHE. The first is still sailing on the route. The latter is in Perama.
