DFDS has praised its new post-Brexit vessel route a “success” after it started voyages between France and Ireland last month.
The Danish logistics company has bypassed the UK landbridge and is now travelling between Dunkirk and Rosslare.
The route is currently being served by three charted Ro-Pax vessels, departing six times a week, and carrying driver accompanied trailers.
The company has appointed additional staff in Rosslare who are currently being trained, with more positions set to be filled in the coming weeks, making the route fully staffed and operational.
Kell Robdrup, the senior vice president at DFD, said: “I want to thank everyone involved. A lot of time and effort has gone into this start-up and we had some challenges during the first week of operation. However, the setup is improving day by day.
“We could not have pulled off a start with this volume without everyone’s knowledge and experience. We can now look forward and optimize the route even further.”
