11:34 2012

DFDS and Volvo have signed a new agreement for the transport of cargo on three DFDS routes: Gothenburg – Ghent (including a weekly call at Brevik), Gothenburg – Immingham and Gothenburg – Tilbury

The contracts with Volvo Group Logistics Services commence on 1 July 2012 whereas the contracts with Volvo Car Corporation will come into force on 1 August 2012. The contracts run until 1 January 2015.

DFDS continues to be solely responsible for the logistics of Volvo Group Logistics Services and Volvo Car Corporation between their main production facilities in Gothenburg and Ghent.

This includes shipment and handling of vehicle parts, new cars, trucks, buses, heavy construction equipment, production materials and packaging.

DFDS also transports automotive cargo for Jaguar Land Rover, which is a client of Volvo Group Logistics Services.

As a result of the agreement, volumes will increase to 160,000 units and annual revenue will be about EUR 55m.

In addition to the above, DFDS also carries volumes on behalf of Volvo Group Logistics Services on routes in the Baltic Sea.

Furthermore, DFDS takes over Volvo Group Logistics Services’ operational management responsibilities of the Mercatordok Terminal in Ghent where the Gothenburg – Brevik – Ghent route is calling.

DFDS already operates port terminals in the main hubs of the North Sea route network and operational systems and expertise from these port terminals will be deployed to improve service levels and cost efficiency of the Mercatordok Terminal.

The agreement covering port terminal operations runs until November 2016.
