Danish shipping and logistics company DFDS has taken delivery of the third of six roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) ferries being built by Jinling Shipyard in China.

The vessel was officially delivered on October 9, a little less than a year after construction works on the vessel started in November 2018.

The yet-to-be-named vessel started sea trials in August this year.

The first in the series of mega freight ferries was delivered in February this year, while the second was delivered in early May. The two units are the largest freight ferries in the DFDS fleet.

Construction of the fourth unit started with a keel-laying ceremony in March this year.

In 2018, DFDS acquired U.N. Ro-Ro, Turkey’s largest operator of freight routes, to better use opportunities from the fast-growing transport market between Turkey and the EU. In addition, the company decided to expand both port terminal and route capacities in order to accommodate the volume increase of around 30 percent in the Mediterranean. DFDS is also increasing vessel capacity by allocating further ships to this market.
