DFDS’ shipping network integrates freight and passenger services. In 1866 several small Danish shipping companies merged to form what has come to be the oldest major shipping company in Denmark: DFDS - "Det Forenede Dampskibs-Selskab" (The United Steamship Company). They deliver high frequency and reliable freight services to haulage and forwarding companies. For passengers, they provide great maritime experiences as well as transport services for passengers travelling by car wanting to travel around Europe and Scandinavia. They also develop and deliver industrial logistics solutions in close co-operation with producers of heavy industrial goods.
