INVESTOR NEWS NO.32/2021


Ferry – freight: Total volumes in September 2021 were 1.9% below 2020. Net adjustments for structural route changes reduced growth 1.7 ppt to -3.6%.

The volumes transported in September 2021 by the Mediterranean business unit were well above 2020 while Baltic Sea volumes were on level with 2020. North Sea volumes were just below last year due to headwind from lower automotive volumes and truck driver shortage in the UK.

The slowdown in the total Channel market continued in September driven by the UK truck driver shortage and other supply chain bottlenecks. DFDS’ Channel volumes were below 2020, including the Dunkirk-Rosslare route opened at the beginning of 2021.

Volumes for all business units, except for Channel, were above 2019.

Ferry – passenger: The total number of passengers in September 2021 was 37.7% above 2020 as travel restrictions started to be eased during the month.
