Freight grows on Frederikshavn – Oslo
Few Danish routes have been as hard hit by COVID-19 as those between Denmark and Norway. Now it is evident that the decision by DFDS to include Frederikshavn in their sailings between Copenhagen and Oslo was a wise one.
Even though business continues to be challenged, week 36 exceeded last year’s freight result for the route, and September may be the first full month to do so too. And this is due mainly to the success in attracting freight volumes to the new Frederikshavn – Oslo leg.
“This was done in fierce competition with other transport corridors so a warm thank you to our operations colleagues in Copenhagen, Oslo and on board for delivering customer services that make the difference”, says Lars Kristian Haugen, Freight Manager for the route.
Kasper Hægeland Svenningsen, Managing Director of Ferry in Norway, says: “Thank you to everyone on the route, ashore and aboard, for taking such good care of our customers. Thanks also for great sales and booking numbers and for helping us fully utilise the capacity of the ships at peak departure times. Creativity and collaboration have been great tools for achieving this.”
